Advent - Christingle Service

Our whole school learnt about Christingle and what it means to the Christian faith during Advent. We learnt that the word Christingle means “Christ’s Light” and it is a symbol of the Christian faith. We also found out that the first Christingle service was held in Germany around 1747, and they have been held in England from 1968.


We each made a Christingle using the following:

• An orange. This  represents the world.

• Red sticky tape. This went around the “world” and reminds us that Jesus died because it represents the blood of Jesus.

• 4 cocktail sticks. These represent the 4 seasons: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.

• Dried fruit and sweets remind us of God’s gifts to the world.

• A white candle in the middle represents Jesus - the light of the world.


We held our Christingles during our Christmas Carol Concert which took place within our school yard. We all joined in and sang a range of Christmas Carols for our parents, grandparents and members of our family. It was a really lovely afternoon, which we all enjoyed!
