Creative Candlemas


Each year, we explore different ways of doing liturgy. This year, Local Preacher Dee Gürfer created a service entitled “Welcoming the Light” comprising readings, poetry and music, as well as a fun creative element with those attending creating a decoration to take home made of sand, sticks and lights. The service ended (following a German Candlemas tradition) with branches – laden with chocolate bars – lopped from the Christmas Tree for all to take home. (Admittedly, not all chocolate bars made it that far!)
