christingle services 24th december
Celebrate Advent with the whole family at Emmanuel Church, 6 Barlow Moor Road on 24th December.
Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle. Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.
The orange represents the world The red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ, the sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations, the lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness. There will be a Collection for the Children’s Society, helping disadvantaged children.
Services: 2.00pm, 3.15pm and 4.30pm
