Christingle

Our Christingle Service is on 8 December at 4pm. All children and grown-ups welcome. There is also a drop-in ‘Get Ready for Christingle’ session in church on Saturday 7 December from 10.30am-noon. Children accompanied by a grown-up are welcome for snacks, fun, crafts and chat.

The Christingle Service helps to raise money for The Children’s Society. We also give out collection boxes for them that can be filled with loose change. If you have one of these boxes, please can it be returned by the end of December? We can then issue you with a new one if you like. Either bring it to a church service at St Andrew’s or call Dawn on 01353 723134 to arrange collection.

Also this year our Posada family (Mary, Joseph and donkey) will be setting off from this service on a journey round Soham looking for a place to stay. They will be returning to church at the Crib service on Christmas Eve at 4pm. If you can offer them a home for a night please sign the list near the church door. Each host family will receive the Holy Couple (and their donkey) in a basket from the previous hosts and will contact the next hosts to arrange delivery the next day. The final family brings them to the crib service on Christmas Eve.
