A Christingle service was held by Finchingfield Primary School at St John the Baptist Church in the village.

The children said the Christingle Prayer and carried the symbolic oranges covered in sweets with a lit candle on top.

The orange symbolises the world, the sweets food, a red tape the blood of Jesus and the candle is life.

There were readings from Luke about the birth of Jesus and the Shepherds and the children sang O Little Town of Bethlehem.

Headteacher, Lisa Feldman said: “The service was as a really special way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.”
