What can be more Christmassy than the faces of tiny children lit up with candle flames, in a church that resounds to the best loved carols?
It makes the hairs on the back of our necks stand up too!
Christingle originated in Germany in the mid-eighteenth century as a way of encapsulating something of God's love for children. Adapted over the years, the message remains the same.
Each person coming to the service will be given an orange with a red ribbon tied around it, a candle in the top and sweets on cocktail sticks stuck into it. And yes, the sweets can be eaten in church.
All warmly welcome. The service starts at 4pm and finishes around 5pm. Like all our public services, admission is free.
