A very popular service with carols for all the family on Christmas Eve: the Crib scene is assembled (symbolising the Christ Child, his mother Mary her husband Joseph and the Shepherds, Magi and animals, assembled in a stable at Bethlehem); the Christmas story is proclaimed in a lively spirit; and all are presented with a Christingle (symbolising Christ, the Light of the World) to take away with them. The service ends with the Christingle candles being lit and prayers being offered by candle-light.
