Events: Past & Present

Messy Christingle and Crib Service

24th December 2018, 4 p.m.

We have lots of things to see and do over Christmas, especially for helping children understand the meaning behind all the food and gifts, while having some fun too and our Crib Service with Christingle is one such event!

Our crib services are often the best attended services of the year and this year we’ll combining it with Messy Church.

Christingle services use a special symbol, a decorated orange, (pictured), to explore the story of God’s love for the world at Christmas.

The orange represents the world.

The fruits or sweets represent God’s creation and the blessings of the seasons.

The candle represents Jesus, the light of the world bringing hope to those in darkness.

The red ribbon round the orange represents the love of God and the blood of Jesus.

Rediscover your appetite for wonder as you share in the story of the birth of Jesus at our Crib Service. All welcome.
