HELENSBURGH Parish Church is playing host to a Christingle service on Christmas Eve.

The service, led by Emily Harvey-Cartmell, starts at 5pm, but you can come along early from 4.30pm to make your Christingle - an orange with sweets and a candle, that will be lit during the service - or bring one you made at home.

This service will be family friendly with carols and the lighting of the Christingles.

Contact Emily on familyministry@helensburghcos.org for more details.

The church’s Watchnight service takes place at 11.15pm on Christmas Eve, and will be followed by a family service at 10.30am on Christmas Day.

All welcome at any or all of the services.
