This Sunday’s 10.15 Liturgy will be a Christingle Service and we hope many families will attend. For those who have not attended a Christingle service before here are some details about what it’s all about:
The symbolism of Christingle
Each element of a Christingle has a special meaning and helps to tell the Christian story:
The orange represents the world
The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
The four cocktail sticks represent the four corners of the earth
The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations,
The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness.
It is traditional at a Christingle Service to bring along a present for underprivileged children and this year we will be collecting new toys for Hestia Hellas.
