Christingle Service

Why not come along to our annual service?
The story of the Christingle is that there were three children, who were very poor, but wanted to give a gift to Jesus, like the other families at church were doing. The only nice thing they had was an orange, so they decided to give him that. The top was going slightly green, so the eldest cut it out and put a candle in the hole. They thought it looked dull, so the youngest girl took her best red ribbon from her hair and attached it round the middle with toothpicks. The middle child had the idea to put a few pieces of dried fruit on the ends of the sticks. They took it to the church for the Christmas mass, and whereas the other children sneered at their meagre gift, the priest took their gift and showed it as an example of true understanding of the meaning of Christmas.

The Boreham uniformed organisations will meet at about 3pm on the day at the Church to make these christingles to take to the service. (Please contact your group to confirm this)

If your son or daughter are in these organisations then they may want to join in at the Church.  Alternatively you can make your own at home and bring them with you at 4pm; find instructions on how to make a christingle HERE.
