Below a picture of the high altar aglow with candles lit during our recent service remembering our departed loved ones. This annual event, to which family and friends of those the parish has had contact with through funeral ministry over the past year are invited, is an important opportunity for us to gather in stillness and prayer to remember the grace and mercy of our God and his promise of new life.

Light is a central theme in this worship, the Paschal Easter Candle prominent as a symbol of Christ Resurrection and promise that all who are faithful will be raised up with him to glory. These candles are re-lit again for our Candlelight Carols on the 22nd December at 6.30pm and the Midnight Eucharist 11.30pm on the Eve of Christmas 24th December as tributes to those whom we have loved and still shine in our hearts.
