On Saturday 10th December many children, parents, carers and volunteer helpers gathered at St Lawrence Lindridge Primary School for this joyous occasion. A great social event with community coming together which set us up for the forthcoming festivities.
As well as preparing our Christingles and talking about the symbolic meaning, many other crafts were on offer to enjoy, including wreath decorating, Nativity lanterns, stencil painting, snowflakes, crackers, Christmas cards, and scratch art. The children enjoyed seasonal face painting, and there were plenty of mince pies and refreshments at the ready for all to enjoy.
After a busy afternoon of crafts we gathered for our Christingle Service led by Reverend Ted Whittaker, with song, dance, prayer, reflection and a poem. Lights were dimmed and candles lit, as we passed the light of Christ on to our families, neighbours and friends.
Thank you for all the kind donations received from this celebration, all monies are handed on to the Children’s Society to further their work with underprivileged children.
Thank you also to all those involved helping in so many ways during the afternoon, making this event so successful.
