christingle 2009 003 christingle 2009 003

The children (and adults) enjoyed making Christingles during the morning service. The symbolism of the Christingle is that:

the Earth (and its people) is represented by the orange, the white candle at the centre represents Christ’s purity and the flame of the candle portrays Jesus as Light of the world. The red ribbon around the orange reminds us of the blood that Christ shed for us and the surrounding sweets represent the fruits of the earth.
