Service of Reflection 2021: From Darkness to Light

On 2 November 2021 we held an online Service of Reflection, attended by many from across the Christian aid community. 

The service was a time for us to come together in a moment of comfort, hope and solidarity to remember those who lit up our lives. 

We also honoured our supporters who have generously left a gift in their Will for Christian Aid’s work and celebrated the lives of loved ones, in whose memory donations have been made. In their name, we continue to challenge injustice and fight poverty. 

Share your memories

There are countless stories of love represented by all those who joined our service. We invite you to share your own stories, memories and photos to celebrate and remember your loved ones on Christian Aid’s ‘Lights of Love’ memory wall

Watch the Service of Reflection 2021

We have all been through such enormous change and loss, especially those who have lost a loved one.

You can watch, or re-watch the 45 minute Service of Reflection 2021. We hope this will offer a moment of comfort and hope.
