What is Christingle?
Christingle is a celebratory event which takes place every year in the run up to Christmas. Now in its 48th year, this vibrant event is hugely popular for churches and schools, raising millions to help us change the lives of disadvantaged children. And all it takes is an orange!
Celebrating Christingle in your church
Christingle services are a great way to bring your church together in all-age worship and reflection during Advent and Christmas. Whatever your style of worship, you can create a Christingle celebration that fits around you and your church and reaches out to your local community.
Celebrating Christingle in your school
Because it was designed specifically to help children understand the Gospel, Christingle works as a great teaching tool as well as being a fantastic opportunity for you to bring your school together for a celebration enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Celebrating Christingle with your Scout or Brownie group
The child-centred nature of Christingle means there are plenty of opportunities for the young people you work with to learn new skills and grow in their personal development whilst reaching out to the wider community.
