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
