Christingle

30th November 2017
All of our children made Christingles last week.  We'd like to say a big thank you to Sainsburys in Pulborough for donating the oranges so that each pupil could make their own 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
A special Christingle service was held on Sunday in St. Mary's Church which was attended by many of our pupils and their families.  £155 was raised for the Children's Society after the service.  You can find out more about the Children's Society and Christingle here.
