Christingles at CBC

 

We have been holding a Christingle service at CBC since 1995, but the tradition is far older.  Like many of our Christmas customs, the Christingle originated in Germany.  The first Christingle service was in 1747 at the Moravian church in the village of Marienborn in Saxony.  Moravian missionaries carried the tradition with them to many different parts of the world and the original simple candle has been adapted and changed over the years.  In 1968 it was introduced to the Church of England Children's Society.  The CBC Christingle service is close to the Moravian style.  We aim to involve the children as much as possible.  The highlight is when the lighted Christingles are carried into a darkened church and we all sing "Silent Night".
