Annerley Baptist Church
556 Ipswich Rd, Annerley
Sunday 12 December
6pm to 9pm
(World Candle Lighting at 7pm)
This year our annual Candle Lighting Service will again be held at 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) 3540 9949.
Submissions for the Candlelight Service
All members are welcome to submit photos of their loved ones, 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.
Members may also submit a photo of their loved one and an appropriate song to include in a slideshow played during the Service. 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 Friday 5th December.
