The Children’s Society first introduced Christingle to The Church of England in 1968, and it has since become one of the most popular events for families and communities in the church calendar.

On Friday 6 January, the Pre Prep and Junior School boys attended a Christingle service in the Chapel. One boy from each class was chosen to make a Christingle and carry it up to the alter. Mr Swann did a service reminding us of the symbolism of the Christingle.

  • The orange – represents the world
  • The red ribbon – indicates the love and blood of Christ
  • The dried fruits and sweets – symbols of God’s creations
