Christingle 2022

Sunday 4th December 0930

The Christingle service is always a popular occasion and at St John’s it will take place on Sunday 4th December at 0930.

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.   During our service, the children present will make their own Christingle which consists of an orange representing the world, with a red ribbon around it signifying the love and blood of Christ. Dried fruits are symbols of God’s creation and a lighted candle Jesus and his love of the world in bringing hope to all.

Once the Christingle are made, they’ll be placed on the altar and lit for all to see. Christingle makers will be able to take their creations home after the service.

There will be a collection in aid of the Children’s Society. [We are not responsible for the content on other websites]
