Annerley Baptist Church
556 Ipswich Rd, Annerley
Sunday 13 December
6pm to 9pm
(World Candle Lighting at 7pm)
This year our annual Candle Lighting Service will be held in a new location, the Annerley Baptist Church.
As customary, the service will be held on the second Sunday in December, with the timing to coincide with 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 will adjourn to the back of the church where a light supper will be provided. This may not be till 8pm, so you may wish to eat before you attend.
All bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents and their families are invited to this special event.
If you have any queries, please telephone us on (07) 3254 2657.
Submissions for the Candlelight Service
All members are welcome to submit photos, drawings, short readings or poems for inclusion in the Candlelight Service Booklet, or to be read at the Service. Please advise us when you send in your contribution if you or a family member wish to read your submission at the Service, or if you would like us to have someone to read it on your behalf.
You are also encouraged to submit photos and an appropriate song for inclusion in a slideshow to be played during the Service. If you do this, please include your child’s name and their age as you would like it to appear. Also be mindful the number of songs and the length of songs we can play is limited so we may edit your selection.
Closing date for all submissions for the Candlelight Service is Monday 30th November.
