We were delighted every year to be invited to help lead the Christingle Service at All Saint's Church in Driffield on Advent Sunday in aid of the Driffield branch of the Children's Society.
Our Year 2 children write and lead the prayers, They focus their thoughts on what were there hopes for children growing up in the future.
Choir also help to lead worship for those attending the service.'

Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the service. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle. Find out more about the meaning of each element of the Christingle below.
