Christingle at St Luke’s Church

Christingle is a joyful celebration that brings families and communities together to share the light of Jesus and spread a message of hope.

Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the ceremony.  Christingles are oranges wrapped in red tape, decorated with dried fruit or sweets, with a candle on the top.

Before the celebration, the learners made their own Christingle.
