“Our annual Light Up A Life service has always offered our local community the opportunity to come together, to reflect, and offer comfort and support during what can be a difficult time of the year.

“Due to social distancing, we have moved the service online, but we hope we can still offer the unity and togetherness these wonderful services are so well known for.”
