Christmas Services at St Katharine’s 2018

There will be plenty of opportunity for everyone to “Follow the Star” at St Katharine’s this year.  All are welcome to any or all of the services including:

Christingle on Sunday 9th December at 4.00pm. During the service we will light a Christingle candle and explore the symbolism of each element.

* The orange represents the world

* The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ

* The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations

* The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to          people living in darkness.

There will be a collection during the Christingle service for The Children’s Society.
