Christ’s love stretches around the world: there’s plenty for us all and no one is left out.

Come and share Christ’s love with us at our annual Christingle services at 10.30am & 4pm at Christ Church Downend.  Christingles are models made from oranges, ribbons, sweets and candles, which symbolise the way Jesus came to rescue the world and remind us how we can get together as lights in our world.  By using Christingles and collecting donations we support The Children’s Society which protects and helps children in poverty in the UK.

Please ask if you would like a special candle shaped collection box to collect small change for The Children’s Society. You can bring it along to the service.

Come and see faces of children and adults light up with hope this Advent.
