The Christingle starts with an orange, and around it God’s love shines through the red ribbon surrounding it, which represents the blood that was shed by Jesus who died so that we might live.
We give thanks for the four seasons that are represented by the four stick that are set around the orange, and we are forever grateful for the abundant good food we share represented by the sweetmeats that are on the sticks.
The candle represents Jesus, the light of the world, just like the world which God made, his creation in all its glory.
And it took around 18 of us including Revd Anne and Revd Julie to start with an orange and to complete around 150 Christingles ready for tomorrows Christingle service, a service that supports the Children’s Society.
Revd Carolyn thanks everyone who turned up this afternoon to help make the Christingles and to enjoy the fun of making them – Thank you - Carolyn
Let’s Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle, it’s the light of Christ.
