Lights of Love Derry

Wednesday 11th December, 8pm

Derry/Londonderry Wednesday 11th December, St Augustine's Church.

This will be our second year for Derry/Londonderry and the 7th year for the Portadown service.

The main focus of the services is the Sands Christmas Tree.

Parents are invited to place a hand-written card on the tree during the service in memory of their child.

The message on the card can be anything, from a simple "Missing you at Christmas, love Mum & Dad" to words of scripture, words of a song/poem or something you've composed.

The service will include well known Carols and some very moving poems as well as a Bible reading.

One Mum said "I placed my card on the tree which filled up with lots of other cards, it made me feel less alone and that my little boy was not alone too" Cards can be written and placed on the tree for you if you can't make it to the service by emailing your message to us.

Please write your address on the back of each card if you would like them returned to you after the tree is taken down in January.
