Saturday Mornings at York Minster

Create a Christingle

Scroll to explore

Join our new sessions for families – Saturday Mornings at York Minster – and get hands on creating a Christingle, symbolising Jesus as the light of the world.

The new sessions will run throughout the year and explore the seasons in the Christian calendar, with different interactive opportunities each time including craft workshops, sensory activities, music and worship.

For the first event, families are invited to create a Christingle by decorating an orange with dried fruit, ribbon and a candle to symbolise the light of Christ in the darkness and help spread a message of hope. There will also be a short service lasting around 20 minutes as part of the session.

Free tickets should be booked in advance and are available HERE, with all materials for the Christingles provided. Families are invited to come at any time during the 45 minute event, which starts at 10.00am, and stay for as long or as little as they like.

Future dates and seasonal themes for Saturday Mornings at York Minster in 2022 include:

Saturday 16 April – Easter
Saturday 4 June – Jubilee

Saturday 10 September – Harvest
Saturday 5 November – Remembering
Saturday 3 December – Advent
