Christ­in­gles on dis­play to her­ald the start of Ad­vent

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A CHRIST­IN­GLE ser­vice was held to her­ald in Ad­vent at the week­end.

St Michael and All An­gels Church, in Gren­fell Road, Bea­cons­field held the fes­tive ser­vice on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Rev Camilla Walton led the ser­vice, ex­plain­ing why it is called Christ­in­gle be­fore fam­i­lies gath­ered for re­fresh­ments in the hall.

Chil­dren also got a chance to make their own Christ­in­gles.

A Christ­in­gle is a sym­bolic ob­ject – it con­sists of an orange, rep­re­sent­ing the earth, a red rib­bon rep­re­sent­ing the blood of Christ and a can­dle to rep­re­sent the light of the world.
