Sunday 10th December 4pm
This informal service at 4pm on Sunday 10th December – in aid of the Children’s Society – is a hit for young and not-so-young alike. We will also switch on our Christmas Tree lights for the first time.
The Christingle service dates back to 1747 when a German bishop was looking for a simple way of explaining the importance of Jesus Christ in our world. All those attending will be given a Christingle consisting of a decorated orange. The orange represents the world; the red ribbon around it signifies the love and blood of Christ. The dried fruits are symbols of God’s creation and the lighted candle, Jesus and his love of the world in bringing hope to all.
During the service, the church is plunged into darkness while the christingles are lit, creating a magical effect in this ancient space. We will be glad to see you – however old you are! The service is led by the Revd Joanna Naish
