Christingle Services, with their familiar symbol of a lighted candle, orange, red ribbon and fruits, can be held from Advent to Epiphany. Christingle was established by the Moravian Church in 1747 as a symbol of Christ's light and love. It was introduced to the Church of England in 1968 by The Children's Society, for which the annual Christingle appeal raises vital funds. Collections taken during Christingle Services are usually donated to The Children's Society, if for no other reason that it is the source of the materials and ideas used during the service.

Christingle Resources
