This year we are having to do things differently in lots of ways – one of which is how we can join each other for our 2020 Christingle service.
At St Ed’s we are having a virtual Christingle service via our Facebook page at 3:30pm on Christmas Eve so all can join from their own homes.
The celebration is named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets/fruit and a candle. All the family will enjoy this feast of candles and oranges as part of their preparation for Christmas.
From the morning of Tuesday 22nd December 2020 we will have Christingle packs in the porch at St Eds which you are welcome to come and collect.
Please be mindful of others who may be doing the same – remember to keep your distance and, if other people are around, wear a mask when entering the porch.
The pack contains everything you need to participate in the service.
If you are unable to visit to the church before the service on Christmas Eve then you can find the service sheet attached to this notice. Also if you have the items for the Christingle mentioned above please have them ready – or simply have a candle on its own so it can be lit when we light the Christingles.
We hope you can join us live or maybe watch later ‘on catch up’.
