Will you be Christingling this year?

THE Children’s Society has been celebrating Christingle with churches for over 50 years. It’s a chance to come together to have fun, celebrate and support young people. This year, as the aftermath of the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis continue to put pressure on families, these Christingles mean more than ever.

The last few years have been difficult for all of us and children across the country have been pushed to their limits. Now, they need our community’s support more than ever as rising costs put families under pressure.

The Children’s Society is a national charity fighting for the hope and happiness of young people when they are threatened by abuse, exploitation and neglect. It is looking forward to celebrating this year’s Christingle with you. Lots of churches and community groups already have their date in the calendar. When will you hold yours?

Why not talk to your local clergy to talk about Christingle opportunities for this year? Whether you are planning a traditional service or an outdoor “muddy” Christingle, now is the time to start planning and looking forward to welcoming new faces into your church.

Visit christingle.org to get started, order resources and register your event.

If you need support, get in touch with The Children’s Society’s dedicated Supporter Care Team at supportercare@childrenssociety.org.uk or call 0300 303 7000. Join the organisers’ group on Facebook (facebook.com/groups/christingle) to chat with other Christinglers and share ideas and advice.
