Christmas at St. Mark's

Christingle

Christingle

Sunday 27th November, 4.00pm

 

The Children's Society holds it's special Christingle appeal each year to raise awareness and vital funds for the children in this country who face life‘s harshest challenges - children who may find themselves sleeping rough this winter; fleeing conflict and war; caught in a cycle of crime; or marginalised due to a disability.

The Christingle

The 'Christingle', which symbolises the light of Christ's love, is a lighted candle mounted in an orange, which has a red ribbon or tape around it. Also surrounding the orange are four cocktail sticks, each bearing dried fruit or sweets.
