The Christingle Service

December 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The history of Christingle
This year is a very special one for Christingle as it is 50 years since the first Christingle service for The Children’s Society was held in this country, at Lincoln Cathedral on 7 December 1968. But Christingles themselves actually go back much further, and began in the Moravian Church in Germany. At a children’s service in Marienborn in 1747, Bishop Johannes de Watteville looked for a simple way to explain the happiness that had come to people through Jesus.
