Christingles trace their history back to the morovian church in Germany in the mid 18th century.  They are a simple way to expalain the joy of Jesus coming into the world that has become associated with Christmas for many people.  


The Christingle is an orange with red tape or ribbon wrapped around it, four cocktail sticks with sweets and dried fruit stuck into the sides, and a candle pushed into the top.  To find out why, to make your own Christingle, and to enjoy a short candleit service in the church, come along at 3:30pm on Sunday the 4th December.  We will begin in the church hall where we will make our Christingles, and then we will head along to the church for the service.  Children of all ages are welcome, but must be accomanied by an adult.  See you there!
