Christingle Messy Church

Here are some ideas that we used at our Christingle based Messy Church.  There was a mixture of Nativity and general Christmas crafts and we finished with a short Christingle service, lighting the candles and singing ‘Away in a Manger.’

Making Christingles: Get parents and children to help make the Christingles by putting in the candles, putting red tape round the orange and putting sweets on sticks.  It might get a bit messy but that is the point of Messy Church!
