Children and adults met together on Sunday December 9th to enjoy a Christingle Service led by the Revd. James Church and trainee URC Minister, Fiona Elvins. The music group led the songs.

The service focussed on Jesus, the Light of the World. We began by lighting the second Advent candle symbolising Love and then everyone enjoyed the story of “When Santa learned the Gospel”. telling how Santa realised that only God is perfect but that everyone should endeavour to do their very best to be like him.

Children and adults joined lustily in singing “This Little Light of Mine” and performed actions to the words.

Fiona led us in the making of Christingles and explained the significance of the red ribbon, the fruits of the earth and the candle. The lights were dimmed as we lit our Christingles.
