We reflected on the significance of the 'Christingle' during Collective Worship today.
The Symbolism of Christingle
Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.
The orange represents the world
The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God's creations
The lit candle represents Jesus's light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness
Throughout advent we are learning about what each candle represents.
We sang songs, shared our prayer pebbles and lit candles at our Reception Welcome Service
