Everybody is welcome, especially anyone affected by the loss of a child, at any age, gestation and no matter how long ago. Lights of Love is a candlelit service of carols and readings. A time for reflection in the run up to Christmas, to remember our babies and children and honour their existence. The service starts at 7:30pm, but please arrive early if you wish to:- - Star tags: write a personal message and hang on the Christmas tree - Roll of Remembrance: we invite you to write down your baby or child's name and these will be read out during the service - Volunteer to read a verse of our 'Five Candles for You' poem, read just before the congregation is invited to the front to light a candle.
