Service of Reflection 2020

Please join our service at 5:30pm.

You will be able to watch the service here on this page at 5.30pm. Even though our service is online, we would love for you to join in the responses wherever you are.

If you’d like to do so, you’ll see those words appear in orange on screen, along with the words to our hymn.

For those who have shared the names of loved ones with us for inclusion on screen – all names will appear in alphabetical order, by surname. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to accept new submissions for inclusion on screen, but we are able to share names and messages in the comments section for those watching our service on Facebook. If you would like us to share any names or messages about loved ones on your behalf in this way, please do contact Kerry at legacyteam@christian-aid.org.

For those watching, please remember to have your candle ready to light in memory of your loved one.

Love…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

– 1 Corinthians 13:7-8.

This year our service will be pre-recorded and streamed online, and we warmly welcome you to join together with us to remember and reflect. The recording will also be available on this page afterwards, for anyone unable to join at the time above.

We’ve all been through enormous change and loss during the coronavirus pandemic, especially those who have lost a loved one. This special service of reflection is a time to come together in our grief in this difficult year and to remember and celebrate those we love, who are no longer here.

It is also a chance for those feeling a more general sense of loss to carve out time to acknowledge this and to reflect on it.

The service will be introduced by Amanda Mukwashi, our Chief Executive, and include a sermon from Dr Rowan Williams. It will give time and space for personal reflection, and an opportunity to light a candle in memory, should you wish.
