December 2014 – Christingle Service

Reverend Julie led a beautiful Christingle Service at Holy Trinity Church, Coleman’s Hatch.

It reminded everyone of the fact that the first Advent candle is a symbol of Hope, and of the importance of preparation for the exciting time ahead. The celebration of the birth of Jesus is coming and we need to be ready.

The children were actively involved in the service,  carrying out readings, helping with the sermon and singing the Sussex Carol.  The children were all pleased to receive and light their Christingles and were able to clearly explain the symbolism of each part of them.
