Our annual Christingle service at St. Matthew’s is designed for children and their families, with well known Christmas carols and songs, and chance to decorate and light a Christingle orange. During this service, we will have a collection in aid of the Children’s Society, a Christian charity which supports vulnerable children in the UK.
What is a Christingle, you may ask?
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. Find out more about the meaning of each element here.
