From Darkness to Light Online service of reflection

Event details


This has been a year of such enormous change and loss, especially for those who have lost a loved one. 

On November 4 2020, we held a special online service of reflection - a time for us all to come together in our grief in this difficult year and to remember and celebrate those we love, who are no longer here.  

If you were not able to join, our recorded service is available to watch on this page, below, or on Facebook. We hope the service will provide an ongoing source of comfort.

We carry the memories of our loved ones with us always, but we know that Christmas can be a particularly difficult time when their absence is felt more acutely. 

Whether this is your first Christmas, or one of many spent remembering the loss of someone important to you, you may wish to watch our service together, or remotely with family and friends. We hope the service will provide an ongoing source of comfort.

You can download the order of service here.

Through the gifts in Wills and gifts in memory that enable and transform our work, we truly see what those we love have given to the world. A part of themselves.
