Light up a Life Remembrance Services

Remember and celebrate the life of a loved one with Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice.
You are invited to join us with friends and family for a special event, as we remember the loved ones we will miss at Christmas time. Enjoy a mince pie, mulled wine and Christmas carols before our Christmas tree lights switch on – all in memory of those who will not be with us at this special time of year.

This year we will hold two services, both led by Rev. Herbert Aparanga and will include readings, carols and prayers.
Our spectacular ‘Light up a Life’ tree will be lit up as part of each service and will shine brightly throughout the festive season; marking the start of Christmas at the Hospice.

Where and When

The events will both be held at Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice, 185 Bostall Hill, Abbey Wood, London, SE2 0GB.
On Saturday 24th November, our first service will begin at 4.30pm following our Christmas Fair which starts at 1pm.
Our second service will be start at 7pm.
