What is Christingle?

It's our annual Nativity Pagent with the nearly the entire Sunday School! And parents get in the spirit too--playing various angels, Scribes and King Herod!


 Many parishioners have asked what "Christingle" means regarding our Christmas Eve family Christingle service.  Here's a short primer on the tradition we adopted from across the pond!  Christingle means 'Christ's Light' and it is a symbol of the Christian faith. Lots of churches hold Christingle services around Christmas time. The custom of giving out lighted candles in these services began in Germany in 1747 but it wasn't introduced to the Anglican Church in England until 1968.
 
Christingles are made up of different parts, each one being there to remind us of something.
  • The orange represents the world.
  • The candle reminds Christians of Jesus who is the light of the world.
  • The red ribbon goes all round the 'world' and being the color of blood, reminds Christians that Jesus died.
  • The four cocktail sticks could have either of two meanings; the four seasons or the four corners of the world.
  • The sweets (or sometimes dried fruit) remind Christians of God's gifts to the world including kindness and love.

Shrove Tuesday

We will have a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper and flap Jack relay races with the whole parish at 5pm. As per tradition, we will also cook a full meal at this time for the men at the Glen Cove Homeless shelter.
