On Monday the 6th December Halmer End Methodist Church held its annual Christingle Service led by our minister the Rev. Joy Ventom. This year's service was an IONA style service published by Wild Goose Publications.

Joy reminded the congregation, which included children from the Brownies and Monday Club, that the orange represents the world lovingly held in God's hands, from the beginning of time, and every day and night until God's work is done.

The red band around the orange represents the blood of Jesus Christ who was crucified. In the life, death and resurrection of Jesus we see God loving the world and changing people's lives for good.

Through bread and wine, made from the fruits of the earth, Jesus showed us how he would save us. Through food and drink, God has always shown people how he loves them.

The candle represents Christ, who is the light of the world. Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness. The light that cannot be put out.
