Alton Webteam: December 2018
On Christmas Eve the church was delighted to welcome lots of children and their families to our all age Christingle Service. Our youngest was about 1 years old and our oldest member was Doris at 100 years!
After singing a carol we heard a story about children from far away who made their first Christingle out of a rotten orange — on presenting it in church the priest then used its symbolism to explain the Christian faith to those gathered. There was a hub bub of activity as we then gathered around tables to make our own Christingle complete with oranges, ribbons, candles and sweets/raisins (mainly sweets!). Then everyone placed the Christingles at the front of the church and we lit them. In the candlelight with then heard the Christmas story and sang a carol to finish. A wonderful occasion!
