Christingle and Gift Service 3pm Sunday 5th December St Wilfrid's Church

This year we are combining our annual Christingle Service with the giving of gifts In the past these gifts have been brought to the St. Wilfrid's Crib Service on Christmas Eve, however this made it very difficult to distribute the gifts to children in time for Christmas. By bringing your gifts to the Christingle Service, there will be more time to ensure they are distributed ready for Christmas Day.

If you would like to bring a gift to the service, please would you label the gift "boy" "girl" or "both" and the age range for which the gift is appropriate. Thank you.
