Christingle

St Matthews - Christingle sm

There’s something magical about the Christingle service; church packed full of families.

Yes, some families are new to church, and yes, they might not know exactly how they should be behaving. But church is full of life and livliness. It’s great seeing Matthew, the priest, leading the service, holding the crowd in the palm of his hand. leading them in the carols and guiding them, first to collect their Christingles and then process around the edge of the church.

The lights are turned out and we sing in the candle-lit darkness.

Fantastic!

Then we popped over the road for a natter.
