More than 100 members of North Norfolk Division Guiding and their families attended a special Christingle service at St Peter's Church in Sheringham to celebrate the start of the festive season.
Led by the Rev Christian Heycocks, the specially written service reminded everyone of the true meaning of Christmas with some traditional carols and a rendition of 'This Little Guiding Light of Mine'.
Prayers were also read out by a member from each section of the Guiding movement - Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Senior Section and Trefoil Guild.
The flags of the units present were paraded around the church and the flagbearers were joined by others members of Girl Guiding carrying Christingle oranges to create a circle of light, after which the lights in the church were lowered for the hymn 'Away in a Manger'.
A retiring collection was made for The Children's Society.
