Christingle service for all the family at Horncastle St Mary’s


Following the success of the Light Party, St Mary’s Church is inviting families to their annual Christingle service, which takes place this Sunday, December 3, at 4pm.

The Rev Charles Patrick said: “The Christingle is a joyful service to get you into the Christmas spirit.

“This celebration of God’s love for the world takes place every year to support the work of the Children’s Society in helping disadvantaged children.”

Before the service takes place, the Christingles need to be made and this will be done on Saturday, December 2 in the church.

Children and their parents are invited to go along at 11am to help with the preparations of the Christingles.

The Rev Patrick added: “The moment in the service when the lights are turned off, the candles are lit and we sing a carol is magical.

“And all it takes is an orange!”
