Our local Reverend Fiona Robinson has published an article on Christingles on the St. John's Church website. In the article, Fiona shows you how to make a Christingle. 

A Christingle is a symbolic object used in the Advent, Christmas and Epiphany services of many Christian denominations. Christingle is a word of German origin, Christkindl meaning "Little Christ Child". 

Christingles became widely known in England by the Children's Society, one of the earliest children's charities. The first Christingle service held in the Church of England by the Children's Society was in 1968. If you want to have a go at making your own Christingle (those with a sweet tooth will approve), then click on the link below:
