From Darkness to Light Online service of reflection

Event details


The service will also be available to view on YouTube, on this page.

Love…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

- 1 Corinthians 13:7-8.

This year our service will be pre-recorded and streamed online, and we warmly welcome you to join together with us to remember and reflect. The recording will also be available on this page afterwards, for anyone unable to join at the time above.

We’ve all been through enormous change and loss during the coronavirus pandemic, especially those who have lost a loved one. This special service of reflection is a time to come together in our grief in this difficult year and to remember and celebrate those we love, who are no longer here.

It is also a chance for those feeling a more general sense of loss to carve out time to acknowledge this and to reflect on it.

The service will be introduced by Amanda Mukwashi, our Chief Executive, and include a sermon from Dr Rowan Williams. It will give time and space for personal reflection, and an opportunity to light a candle in memory, should you wish.

If you would like to see the name of a loved one on the screen during a moment of reflection within the service, we can arrange that. Just email Kerry at
