Attend a Christingle
It is one of the only services where four generations of the same family come to worship together. Amazing!
Margaret, Christingle Organiser
A Christingle celebration is a special candlelit service where thousands of churches, schools and community groups come together to raise vital funds to support our work with vulnerable children and young people.
It is a perfect opportunity for you and your family to share in a unique festive occasion with your community. Every church and school will celebrate Christingle in a different way, but the meaning of Christingle remains the same. Children have fun making the Christingles using oranges, candles, red tape and sweets but they also learn what every part means to Christians.
The message of love and hope, that Christingle represents, permeates through all of the work of The Children’s Society. We work to give every child the childhood they deserve. By joining in the Christingle celebrations and donating through your local event, you will be helping to transform the lives of children in desperate need of our support. You can read more about our work here.
Over 5000 Christingle celebrations will be happening across the country so there’s sure to be one in your area. Visit our interactive map to search for an event near you, or ask your local parish church or school.
