Night of Our Light

Night of Our Light will be held on the 3rd November from 5pm until 8pm in churches across the UK.

Many people do not have somewhere to go to pay their respects to their loved ones in spirit, due to circumstances or cremations. This event allows them that space.

Hundreds of candles will fill the churchyard (weather permitting), lighting it by candlelight. The church will be open for reflection and to light a candle in honour of your loved one. Names will be read out during the evening.

This event is not only for those buried at the church, but for anyone who has lost a loved one.

  • It was a lovely evening and I'll be posting pictures later, although, as ever, they don't truly do it justice. The most commonly used word was 'magical' and it was. If far outweighed what I envisaged in my head and the reaction of the older generation made it so worth it. We had no idea what the response would be, but it was one of such gratitude which blew me away. All in all it was an emotional and beautiful night.
