One of the best things about a Christingle celebration is that, even if you've never held one before, you can tailor the service so that it works best for your church, school or group.

We've made it easy to organise a service, bringing communities up and down the country together to help vulnerable young people. Here are some step-by-step tips to help you plan your celebration:

Guide to planning your Christingle event

  • Get the date in your diary

    Christingle services usually take place between Advent (four weeks before Christmas) and Candlemas (2 February), with Christmas Eve being the most popular time to celebrate.

  • Decide what kind of event you're going to hold

    You might want to start thinking about the type of service you're going to hold. Whatever type of service you chose, just know we'll be here to support you every step of the way.
