Christingle - Sunday 8th December

Join us on Sunday 8th December at 10.45am for our annual Christingle Service. It's an informal family service, so do bring the whole family along!

The celebration is named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle. With your help, Christingle raises vital funds to help children who are facing Christmas alone and are unable to cope.

Your Christingle celebration is an opportunity to bring your whole community together, to share the Christian story and to experience the joy and wonder of this well-loved Christmas tradition. 

Each element of a Christingle has a special meaning and helps to tell the Christian story:

  • 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.
Because Christingle was specifically created with children in mind, the celebrations are the perfect event for children and families and can be enjoyed by people of all ages – even if you don't regularly attend church.
