Christingle services have been taking place all over the country for the past 47 years. In that time, Christingle has grown to become an incredibly popular event, embraced by people from all areas of society. The services include songs and prayers, as well as a collection to help support The Children’s Society, so that they can keep working with some of the country’s most disadvantaged children.
The highlight of the Christingle service involves the lighting of the Christingle candles. You can see what a Christingle looks like above. It is a great way to teach children the story of the gospel and its significance to Christians.
At St Mark’s the Christingle Service this year will be on 29th Nov at 11am and at St George’s it will be celebrated on 31st January during the Family Praise Service at 11:30am.
