Come, behold the heavenly host!

Date: 11 December 2017
AngelsFeatureOver the coming weeks, visitors to Guildford Cathedral will witness a heavenly host of Angels, designed by schools across the region. 

The 200 angels are the work of 47 primary and secondary schools across the diocese, and can be seen in the Cathedral until 8 January. 

Some are in plain sight, some are hidden away, so eagle eyes are recommended. 

Organiser, Jane Whittington from Diocese of Guildford’s Education team said, “The enthusiasm of the schools was incredible.  
“The take-up has been amazing, and the angels are beautiful and thought provoking.” 

The angels are made of card, paper, willow, Cd’s, leaves and plaster of paris and more, with some schools taking the theme one step further by using an angel theme for their Advent and Christmas celebrations. This includes a secret “Advent Angel” activity amongst staff, who are encouraged to take a name out of a hat in secret as with a traditional secret santa, but instead of gifts, doing secret acts of kindness for the recipient.

Don’t miss the angels over the festive season!

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
