UPCOMING CHURCH AND CHARITY

EVENTS:

Christingle Info

There are two option for Christingle this year.

We will hold a Christingle Service on Christmas Eve at 5.30 pm at St Michael's Church. Due to spacial distancing requirements, numbers are limited, and it is essential that you sign up beforehand. Call Revd Christine on 01326 573837 or email curatehelstonwendron@gmail.com to let us know how many members of your household/bubble would like to attend and how many of those are children. Please be aware that there is a legal requirement for everyone over the age of 10 to wear face coverings unless medically exempt. There will be limited toilet facilities to be used in emergencies.

If the service is booked out, or you feel safer at home, go online. We have posted a 'Christingle at Home' service on YouTube, which guides you through making your own Christingle step by step. We still have some 'Christingle at Home' bags available which contain everything you need for that. Call Revd Christine on 01326 573837 or email curatehelstonwendron@gmail.com to arrange collection.
 
Alternatively, get an orange, some sort of red tape or ribbon, 4 toothpicks or cocktail sticks, your favourite soft (!) sweeties, some tinfoil and a small candle for a traditional Christingle, or even pause the video for a creative scavenger hunt around the house to find your own symbols instead. Who knows, in 2020 your Christingle might feature a football and a torch.
 
Our Christingle activities are in support of the fabulous work done by the Children's Society to support children in need. A short video introducing their work is available here and donations can be made online here.
