Church: Colours of the Year

Why are special colours used during the church year?

 

  • What is your favourite colour?
  • Does your school have a special colour?
  • Is there a sports team you support?
  • Do they wear clothes of a special colour?
  • Did you know that some churches use special colours to help them celebrate or remember special times during the year?

You may see these colours in the altar cloths, in the church candles or the stoles that the vicar may wear. Watch this video to find out a bit more.
