The Third sunday of Advent was our Christingle Service, and was a packed turnout and some fantastic singing!
A Christingle usually consists of:
- An orange, representing the world
- A candle pushed into the centre of the orange, then lit, representing Jesus Christ as Light of the World
- A red ribbon wrapped around the orange or a paper frill around the candle, representing the blood of Christ
- Dried fruits and/or sweets skewered on cocktail sticks pushed into the orange, representing the fruits of the earth and the four seasons
It was a wonderful service, thanks to those who came along!
