Christingle Service

5th December 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Holy Rood Church
Christingle Service @ Holy Rood Church

Our Christingle Service takes place soon after the start of Advent – the name the Church gives to the period leading up to Christmas.

This service is particularly suitable for families, but all are welcome.  During the service the children will be given a Christingle.  The different parts of the Christingle each remind us of God’s work in the world.  The orange represents the world. The dried fruits and sweets are symbols of God’s creations. For many people, they also represent the four seasons. The red ribbon round the middle of the orange indicates the love and blood of Christ.  While the lit candle symbolises Jesus, the light of the world, who brings hope to people living in darkness.
