Lights of Love 2021
The photo above, taken in 2019, shows some of the trees ready for the stars to be added. Obviously Lights of Love, on the same scale, was not possible in 2020, although we did fill one tree with all the stars from 2019 (without asking for any money).
This year we are aiming to go ahead with it properly once again. Local organisations will be asked if they would like to sponsor a Christmas tree in church and for £5 the name of your loved one can be placed on a silver star and hung on one of the trees for the whole of the Christmas season. In this lovely way, the memory of those we have loved and lost will be part of Christmas. As before, half of whatever we raise will support the church and half will go to The Heart of Kent Hospice. In 2019 we raised approximately £1260 altogether!
It would be good to hang as many stars as possible by November 28th (Advent Sunday) which is when we'll have a Lights of Love Opening Family Service, but you will be able to add them all through December.
All the information about how to put a name on a star and make your donation is on this leaflet. Leaflets will also be available in church.
