Christingle services will be held at St Peter’s Church, East Bridgford at 3:00pm and 5:00pm on Christmas Eve. Please come along to one of them and encourage any families with children you know to come as well. All the money collected at our Christingle services will go to The Children’s Society. At the back of church are some collection boxes in the shape of candles for children to bring to the Christingle service. Please take one, if you can use it.
The idea of Christingles came from a Moravian Church in Germany in 1747. Click here to see the history and meaning of Christingle.
