Christmas at St. Mark's
Sunday 9th December 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', 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.
- The orange - represents the world
- The lit candle - symbolises Jesus, the Light of the World
- The red ribbon or tape - indicates the love and blood of Christ
- The dired fruits and sweets - are symbolic of God's Creation
