Christingle Service, St Mary’s Church Hartfield – Sunday 10th Dec 9.30am

Friday 8th December 2017

On Friday Rev Julie came in to school to help the children make their Christingles for the service on Sunday.

Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand  the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.

  • 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

The special Christingle service is a beautiful part of the Christmas festivities. We do hope you can join us at St Mary’s Church on Sunday morning at 9.30am
