St Lawrence Church in Abbots Langley hosted young community members in the leadup to Christmas with a heart-warming Christingle service.
Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the ceremony.
Christingles are oranges wrapped in red tape, decorated with dried fruit or sweets, with a candle on the top.
In a Facebook post on November 18, the church said: “It was wonderful to welcome the Brownies and Rainbows to St Lawrence this evening.
“They all had great knowledge about the Christingle and its symbolism. Thank you to the leaders and parents for bringing them.”
Christingles are usually held from the end of November through to February, with Christmas Eve being a particularly popular time for services.
During the service, each person takes a Christingle and the candles are all lit to create a warm, magical glow symbolising the light of Christ and bringing hope to people living in darkness.
