Hever School, Christingle Service

Rev Jane Weeks welcomed around one hundred Primary School children to the Hever Church of England Primary School Christingle service in Friday 6 December. Joined by Bishop James as part of his extensive Tonbridge Deanery visit, Bishop James and the Rev Weeks lit the candles for the children. The children were told,
“Today we remember that the world was once in darkness.  But now we can joyfully celebrate because a light has come that can never be put out, and we have been promised that one day there will be no more darkness.”
The orange at the centre of the Christingle represents the world, the red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ, the dried fruits and sweets are symbols of God’s creation and the lit candle at the centre symbolises the light of the world.
The congregation sang “Shine Jesus Shine” and “Away in a Manger” before the Blessing.
