SAINSBURY’S BEXLEYHEATH DONATES MINCE PIES TO CRUSE BEREAVEMENT CANDLE LIGHT CAROL SERVICE
Sainsbury’s Bexleyheath donated mince pies and tubs of Heroes and Roses to Cruse Bereavement Candle Light Carol Service. Cruse Bereavement Care hosted their fifth Remembrance Carol Service on the evening of 9th December at St. James the Great Church, Bladindon Drive, Bexley. The Carol Service is for families and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones and offers a space to reflect on our lives in the past year. The service had a collection of well known carols for the congregation to sing as well as special Christmas choral pieces sung by the St. James the Great choir. During the service this is an opportunity to dedicate a message in memory of a loved one by, lighting a candle and hanging a message on the Christmas tree. Prayers are offered for those in need, for family and friends, places and people needing peace, as well as those we have loved who have died and who are very much in our thoughts and minds at this time. The service was conducted by Revered Mark Blakely and Revered Ian Smith. After the service, we hosted some light refreshments. The service was well attended with around 100 people (adults and children) in attendance.
