Light up a Life

Light up a Life

lualleafletLight up a Life is a wonderful, vibrant time of year where we gather together and look back on the lives of those special people we have lost – and the joy they brought into our own.

We know that Light up a Life is a very special occasion for all those who attend. It’s a chance to take some time out to remember those we have lost – in a gathering of others who are all going through the same personal journeys. Light up a Life is often sad and joyful at the same time; but always immensely fulfilling for guests, hospice
staff and volunteers alike.

In 2016 we will be hosting four Light up a Life services. Each lasting around an hour and featuring special readings from hospice staff and volunteers and traditional carols and music. Memory Stars (see below), carrying personal messages of remembrance and love, will be displayed in a position of honour at each event.

Our 2016 Light up a Life services will take place on the following dates:

Sunday 20th November at St John’s, Egham at 3:30pm
Sunday 20th November at St Andrew’s Church, Goldsworth Park at 6:30pm
Sunday 4th December at St James’ Church, Weybridge at 3pm
Sunday 4th December at St Dunstan’s Church, Woking at 6.30pm

Memory Stars

We have created an online Memory stars book, which displays all dedicated names and we will regularly be adding to it from now and throughout the Christmas period. You can view the 2016 virtual book here.  

The names are sorted alphabetically but if you are looking for a specific name that you have asked us to add, then you can use the search feature to help you. You can also print out a copy of the booklet for your own keepsake.

Our 2016 memory star, to hang on your Christmas tree, can be downloaded and printed here.
