Celebrate with us
Christingle is a joyful celebration that brings families and communities together to share the light of Jesus and spread a message of hope.
During the service, each person takes a Christingle and the candles are all lit to create and warm, magical glow symbolizing the light of Christ and bringing hope to people living in darkness.
