Tree of Light Switch on Service - Sunday 2nd December at 6pm

2 Dec 2018, 6 p.m. for 45m

Church Lane, Woodchurch

Remember somebody you miss in a special way.
Christmas can be a very special time for sharing memories and thinking of those close to us. Holy Cross Tree of Light is an opportunity to remember a loved one who can't be with you at Christmas.
The Tree of Light helps us to remember family and friends who have helped light up our lives. By giving a donation of minimum £5, a light will be placed on the Tree of Light situated in the Churchyard which can be seen around part of the Parish in Woodchurch and bringing light and love around our neighbourhood.
The name of your loved one will be recorded in the Book of Remembrance located at the back of the Church.
Refreshments will be available after the service in the Parish Community Hall. There will also be an opportunity to purchase various items together with a label to write your own personal message and this can be hung inside on our Christmas Tree in Church during December.
On Saturday 15th December from 12 noon to 3pm the church will be open for you to enjoy some quiet time and reflection and collect your Angel or Star etc. to take home to be hung on your own Christmas Tree over Christmas.

Application Form attached or please phone Sue on 0151 677 5352 for more information.
