Thinking about the meaning of Christmas

All the pre-prep children made Christingles this week.  Each part of the Christingle has a special meaning. It helps to tell the Christian story. The orange represents the World. The red ribbon means the love and the blood of Jesus. The four cocktail sticks represent the four seasons. The sweets and dried fruit represent God’s beautiful world and all His good gifts. The lit candle represents the light of Jesus bringing hope to our world.   

All the pre-prep children gathered outside the beautifully lit tree on the Headmaster’s lawn, and P2 led a short Christingle service. It concluded with the following Christingle prayer,  

“Let these Christingles bring blessing to all the children here today. As these little lights glow in our hands, so may your light shine in our hearts this Christmas, and forever. Amen”.
