Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas: Christingle Service

For Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas, Hilda Saville and Imogen Paterson conducted a live Christingle service for us via Zoom, the recording of which is below.

To make this an interactive service, we delivered almost 300 Christingle packs to our local schools and nurseries for young folk and their families to join in. We are very grateful to Tesco in Lockerbie and Morrisons in Dumfries for donating oranges. Anyone who didn't receive a pack can still join in at home and here’s a wee note of what you’ll need to have to hand.......

- an orange or satsuma/clementine

- a little piece of cooking foil

- a birthday candle

- some red thread/ribbon

- 4 cocktail sticks

- some sweets or dried fruit

We’d love to see photos of your completed Christingles, so please feel free to share a photo with us: visit us on Facebook, comment on this blog post or email
