2019 Candlelight Remembrance Service

Sunday 8th December 2019
from 6.15pm to 9:15pm

Merthyr Road Uniting Church
52 Merthyr Road

Join us for the TCF Worldwide Candle Lighting Service, believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, to honour the memories of our children.

This is a special time of remembrance for bereaved parents and their families and provides an opportunity to acknowledge our children in a beautiful, meaningful way and support each other at what can be a difficult time of year.

We will have a Memory Table on the night, and you are most welcome to bring a photo or other memento of your child to display throughout the Service.

At the completion of the service, we adjourn to the outdoor area where supper is served.  It would be much appreciated if you are able to bring a plate to share for supper.   

All bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents and their families are warmly invited to attend this special event.

If you have any queries, please telephone us on (07) 3254 2657.
