Christingle Service – Review and Photos

The Third sunday of Advent was our Christingle Service, and was a packed turnout and some fantastic singing!

A Christingle is a symbolic object used in the Advent services of many Christian denominations.

Christingle means ‘Christ Light’ and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the “Light of the World“.

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!
