Service of Light

Hi all, saw this and am going to attend in my area. Thought you may be interested also. Camloxx

Three individual Lights of Love evenings of traditional carols, inspiring readings and beautiful music in London, Wales and Northern Ireland will be held on Friday 14th December 2007 at 7.30pm.

The death of a baby or another loved one is difficult to bear at any time of the year. Yet at Christmas, with so much emphasis on children, families, sharing happy times together, those feelings of grief can often seem even more acute.

Building on the success of the previous three year's services at the beautiful St Paul's Church, in London this year we are delighted to once again have events taking place in Wales and Northern Ireland.

The venues for the 3 Lights of Love services are:

St Paul's Church, Wilton Place, Knightsbridge, London SW1

Enquiries: 020 7436 7940 [email protected]

St Paul's is the perfect setting for this candlelit celebration which will include music from the Choir of St Paul's Church and readings from our special guests followed by refreshments of mulled wine, soft drinks and mince pies.

St Mary's Church, Builth Wells, Powys

Enquiries: Shirley 07717 874987 [email protected]

St Mary's Church is situated within the heart of Builth Wells and is perfect for a Lights of Love evening in Wales.

St Mark's Church, Portadown, Co Armagh

Enquiries: Steven 07740 993450 [email protected]

St Marks Church stands in the heart of Portadown town centre. It will provide a peaceful setting for Lights of Love Northern Ireland.
