Christingle Service (at St James)
December 3 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Celebrate Christingle at St James Church.
Christingle means ‘Christ Child’ and originates from the Moravian Church. A symbol of Christianity, Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets or dried fruit and a candle. Each of these different elements has a special meaning:
The orange symbolises the world.
The red ribbon shows God’s love for the world and the blood of Jesus.
The sweets/dried fruit represent God’s creations.
The four cocktail sticks can represent either the four seasons or the four corners of the world.
The candle represents Jesus being the light of the world, bringing hope to those in darkness.
