Christingle Service,

St. Lawrence Church, Sunday, January 31st, 9.30am

Following a wonderful celebration of Christmas, everyone is warmly invited to join us for our Christingle Service, which this year is on the Sunday that marks Candlemas, January 31st.

Candlemas is the time when we turn our back on Christmas, and look instead to Easter. It is also the time when, traditionally, the last of the Christmas candles were given out to the parishioners in order to light their homes! So it is fitting that we give the children Christingles on that occasion as well, which mark both Christís birth and his death, and also the light that he brings to our world. This is a Benefice Service, when we also extend a warm welcome to those from Tysoe and Whatcote, and be offering everyone tea, coffee and cake afterwards!  And it is lovely to be back in the Church! Our collection that Sunday will be in support of The Childrenís Society.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
