Christingle is a celebratory event that takes place in thousands of churches and schools across the country, raising funds that help The Children’s Society work supporting young people
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. 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. Find out more about the meaning of each element of the Christingle on the Children’s Society website.
