HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHRISTINGLE

You will need:  an orange, a small piece of foil, a piece of red ribbon long enough to go around the orange, glue, 4 cocktail sticks, a selection of small sweets, dried fruit etc.

Make a hole in the top of the orange.  Insert some foil to hold the candle (we will give you a candle at the service).  Fasten the ribbon around the middle of the orange. Thread the sweets, fruits etc, onto the cocktail sticks and then stick these into the orange as shown. 

The Orange                  The World

The Candle                   The Light of the World (Jesus)

The Cocktail sticks     The four seasons

The fruit/sweets           The fruits of the earth

The red ribbon             The blood of Jesus who gave his life for us

New Social Events Organisers

Emily Fuller & Sara Coffield recently received Graham’s blessing during the 10.45 service, to take on the ministry of helping coordinate more social events amongst the members of Holy Trinity and the community it outreaches to.  Their vision is to assist with building more friendship and fun in the love of Christ, in response to Justin Welby’s recent suggestion that we have “more fun and less meetings!”

Emily regularly organises ceilidhs and is keen to kick off with a picnic, Sara would like to encourage more films, walks, clothes swaps and regular “My Cup Runneth Over” evenings etc. but if none of that sounds of interest to you, please feel free to share your ideas and get involved!

Contact Emily on 07770 680607 and Sara on 07763 654803 or say hello at church.
