Christingle Services

24 December 2017 - 2.00pm

Celebrate Advent with the whole family. Collection for the Children’s Society, helping disadvantaged children. 

Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle.

The symbolism of Christingle

Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand  the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.

  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness

Learn how to make a Christingle.

Services: 2.00pm, 3.15pm and 4.30pm.
