Families join together for annual Yeadon Christingle
3:18pm Thursday 2nd January 2014 in Local news
Families sang Silent Night by candlelight as part of a Christingle service in Yeadon.
The atmospheric Christmas Eve service at St John’s Church is popular with families and young children.
St John’s Deacon Beverley Sproats said: “We sing carols and a highlight is turning down the lights and lighting all the Christingles, then singing the rest of Silent Night by candlelight.
“It is a very beautiful and special atmosphere as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the light of the world.”
The Christingle – an orange with a red ribbon wrapped around it, a candle in the top, and four cocktail sticks with sweets – represents the world, Jesus, the blood of Christ, the four corners of the earth and the fruits of the earth.
During the service a collection was taken for the Children’s Society, and a talk was given by the Reverend Richard Walker.
