Christingle 4:30 PM on Sunday 3 February 2019


You may be wondering when our Christingle service, in support of the Children’s Society, will be. The answer is that we have decided to hold it in the new year, on the feast of Candlemas, which we will keep on Sunday 3 February. Candlemas, which marks the presentation of the child Jesus in the temple, is the ‘official’ end of the Christmas cycle.  In the Gospel for the day we hear how Jesus, 40 days since his birth, is recognised as the Light of the World. In some traditions, this is the day on which candles are blessed. It seems good, then, to bring together our celebration of Christ’s birth with the candles of Christingle.

The service will be at St Matthew's at 4:30 PM on Sunday 3 February 2019. All welcome.
