Year 5 Pilgrim Academy pupils with their lights to celebrate Christmas.
Year 5 pupils at Pilgrim Academy discussed the meaning of Christingle before making their own lights to celebrate.
Christingle means ‘Christ’s Light’ and it is a symbol of the Christian faith. Lots of churches hold Christingle services around Christmas time. The custom of giving out lighted candles in these services began in Germany in 1747 but it wasn't introduced to the Anglican Church in England until 1968.
Pictured below are members of Orion Class with their candles.
