Church of St. John and St. Philip, The Hague

Christingle Celebration

We will be celebrating Christingle on Sunday February 2nd – the Feast of Candlemas or the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.

Christingle is a custom associated with the Moravian Church which traces its origins to the early 15th Century in what is the present-day Czech Republic. It has become popular as an Advent/Christmas celebration over the last 50 years or so and, in the dark Winter months, its theme of light is one that we can embrace especially at Candlemas.
During the Christingle Service on February 2nd we will have a workshop where you, both young and old, will be able to make your own Christingle (all parts supplied)!
