Christingle Appeal 2007/8- shining light into darkness

19 September 2007

This year's Christingle fundraising appeal has now launched, with an exciting new range of free all-age worship resources available to order and download. With an inspiring new Christingle design and plenty of information and ideas to offer, The Children's Society can provide you with everything you need to create your own special candlelit celebration.

A Christingle celebration places children at its heart and brings together families and friends in an act of all-age worship. Held from Advent to Epiphany, this appealing, festive celebration is a wonderful opportunity to encourage newcomers to Church and explore the key messages of the Christian Faith with adults and children alike.

Last year, a record-breaking £1,224,818 was raised in aid of The Children's Society through Christingle celebrations, with nearly one million children and adults attending.

The aim this year, is to continue to inspire people through Christingle and raise even more to help give children back their childhood.

Visit the dedicated Christingle web page to find out more about our wide range of free all-age worship resources. You can also register your service online so others can join in your celebration or even search for service near you if you want to take part in someone else's.
