As Christmas approaches, two special services are offered to mark this time of celebration and giving. The annual popular Christingles Service is being held on
The service originating in the Moravian Church of the 19th century and in the 1960's it was adopted by The Children's Society as a way of both explaining the meaning of Christmas and promoting the needs of those the society seeks to help.
The 'visual' part of the service consists of making a 'Christingle', which involves an orange, a candle, some ribbon, cocktail sticks and some sweets. The good thing is that each person can take their Christingle home with them and eat the edibles.
This is a wonderful Christmas family service and all you have to do is turn up at one of the two services. A collection is taken for the work of the Children's Society.
Join us to make a Christingle – all you need is provided, all welcome.
