Carols by Candlelight // Christingle Service

On Sunday 16 December we will have our two key Christmas services:

CHRISTINGLE SERVICE - 10.30am at St David’s Church, 74 Westbourne Road, N7 8AB

This festive season we are launching a new, family-friendly service!

Christingles began at a children’s service in Germany in 1747 as a simple way to explain the happiness that comes to people through Jesus by giving the children a symbol to do this. Today children and grown-ups decorate oranges during the service, with red ribbon, dried fruits, sweets and a candle to create a visual representation of Christ, the light of the world, who they celebrate by the lighting of the Christingle candles. 

Our Christingle service is especially for families with primary school-aged children. Come along for an informal service with carols, suitable for all ages.

CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT - 6.30pm at St Mary Magdalene Church, Holloway Road, N7 8LT

We would love for you to join us for the main event of our festive calendar.

Our Carols by Candlelight is a traditional Christmas service (with a twist), featuring our choir, short reflections, and finishing with mulled wine and mince pies!

This is always a popular service, so we would recommend arriving early - particularly if you would prefer not to sit up in the balcony. Doors will open at 6pm.

Although this service is open to all ages, those with younger children may prefer to attend our Christingle Service in the morning, or our Crib Service on Christmas Eve.

Please note - there will be no 10am, 11am or 5pm services on this date.
