Lights of Love services in October and November

 

 

 

                                                                                                               LIGHTS OF LOVE SERVICES                                                                                                                  

   This year’s services of thanksgiving and remembrance, our Lights of Love services, will be rather different for well known reasons! These services are a chance to come to remember your loved one, to pray for them by name and light a candle in their memory.

   We have 3 Saturday services this year across our Team of churches:

October 24th at 2pm       Swepstone Church   LE67 2SA

October 31st at 2pm         Measham Church     DE12 7HZ (Now fully booked)

November 7th at 2pm      Donisthorpe Church   DE12 7PY

   As with all things right now, we have to adapt what we offer in these services so:

  • There will be some meditative music to listen to as we are not allowed to sing hymns. There will be some short readings and we will share some thoughts in an address. Alongside that, we will pray for your loved one by name and there will be the chance to light a candle. We imagine the service will last about 40-45 minutes.
  • We regret that we can’t offer you a cuppa afterwards.
  • We all have to wear face masks and be socially distanced in the church building.
  • We have a limit of 30 people in a service this year, so we do have to ask you to contact us to let us know if you are coming and to which church. We don’t like having to do this but have to in the present circumstances. Our details are at the bottom of this letter. Please do book in.    

    We do hope you’ll come.  Many in the past, have found this service of great comfort and this year has been a particularly difficult year. But, please, if you know this wouldn’t be right for you, then don’t feel there’s any compulsion to come! If you can’t come but would like us to pray for your loved one in the service anyway, then let us have their name.
