Making a Christingle:
You need: an orange (or tangerine), enough red ribbon to wrap around the orange, small sweets or raisins on cocktail sticks, a small candle to stick into the top of your orange.
- The orange represents the world
- The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
- 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.
We are celebrating with our annual Christingle Service tomorrow evening, 16th December, at 6pm. This year we’re meeting online via Zoom, so contact Helen if you would like the details to join.
