In the build up to Christmas, remember it starts with ‘Christ’.
Christingle is one way we celebrate the love of God for His children. Each part of the Christingle (this is the name for the orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle) holds special symbolism to help us all, especially children, understand the importance of Jesus and the good news of the Bible, and its relevance at Christmas time.
Here’s what you need to know: the orange represents the world; the red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ, the sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations, the lit candle represents Jesus’ light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness. The service usually includes prayers, readings, hymns or carols – not to mention the all-important lighting of the Christingles!
Everyone is welcome.
