Toy & Christingle Service
3rd December 2017
An informal service for all the family which will be held in Holy Trinity Church Theale. Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle.

The symbolism of Christingle

Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.

The orange represents the world

The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ

The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations

The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness

Children are invited to bring along a wrapped toy. All donations will be delivered to disadvantaged children for Christmas. Please mark your gift eg girl aged 6, boy aged 3
