Church of England Diocese of Derby Hathersage

National Day of Reflection

20 Mar 2021, midnight

Our church will be open for the National Day of Reflection on Tuesday 23 March. Let us come together to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and pray for a brighter future.  We plan to open with covid regulations in place - face masks, sanitiser etc - from 10 am to 6 pm.

There will be a national minute of silence at 12 noon, the end will be marked by the tolling of a bell.

At 8pm there will be a minute's silence and we will come together to light up the night. Stand outside with a light – a candle, a torch, even your phone - to remember someone who's died and show your support to people going through a bereavement.

Alternatively you can shine a light in your window for everyone to see.

There will be a candle image in the Heart of Hathersage to mark the day.
