Preparing the Christingles

Join in with Christingle

Christingle celebrations have been taking place all over the country for the past 47 years. In that time, Christingle has grown to become an incredibly popular event, embraced by people from all areas of society. Most Christingle celebrations include songs and prayers, as well as a collection to help support the work of The Children’s Society, so that they can keep working with some of the country’s most disadvantaged children. The highlight of most Christingle celebrations usually involves the lighting of the Christingle candles under dimmed lights – a moment filled with awe and wonder for children and adults alike.

 

The meaning of Christingle

Christingles are also a great way to teach children the story of the gospel and its significance to Christians.
