Wimborne's first Christingle Celebration was held on the afternoon of Saturday 21st December 2019, when about 40 people attended. Revd Pauline Crispin led a short service with suitable carols, with plenty of pictures being shown via the AV system. Pauline then told the Christmas Nativity story, which involved the children finding several sheep and the three gifts of the wise men hidden around the church.

After an explanation of what all the elements of a Christingle represented, the children — and some adults! — had fun making their own. The service closed with lighting all the candles and the singing of "Away in a Manger". After very carefully blowing out the candles, it was time for tea or squash and cake!

Thanks go to Pauline and Richard (on AV) and the many helpers at Wimborne for the service.
