December 2023 – Annual Candle Lighting

December 2023 – Annual Candle Lighting

Our annual Candle Lighting Remembrance Service will be held at the Annerley Baptist Church at 556 Ipswich Road, Annerley, on Sunday 10th December 2023. Doors open from 6:15 and the service will start at 6:45pm, with the lighting of the International Candle at 7pm. The service is part of the TCF Worldwide Candle Lighting Service, believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, to honour the memories of our children.

All bereaved parents, siblings, grandparents, family and friends are invited to this special event. After the Service a light supper will be provided in the church hall.

You can send photos of your loved ones for our Memorial Slideshow and songs and readings for the Service.

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.
