Light Up a Life 2017

Remember your loved ones and support St Barnabas House by taking part in this year’s Light Up a Life service on Monday 11 December.


Each year at Christmas time, the St Barnabas House Light Up a Life appeal provides the local community with the opportunity to come together to remember and reflect on the wonderful moments we have spent with our loved ones and, at the same time, to make a donation in support of the hospice.

Every dedication we have received by Friday 17 November, for each family member or friend, will be included in a specially printed commemorative programme that is the Order of Service at our Light Up a Life services in December. Dedications are now in the special Book of Remembrance, which is on display in the Chapel at the hospice throughout December. You can also view the dedications here.

Why Jude is celebrating Light Up a Life

Steve and JudeJude’s husband, Steve, was cared for by St Barnabas at the end of his life.

Jude said: “All the doctors and nurses were so accommodating and just so caring – they would go the extra mile. Considering he didn’t have long left, it was good to know that I didn’t have to worry and that he was going to be looked after if I left. I knew the nurses were going to take great care of him.”

Light Up a Life services

You are warmly invited to join us, together with your friends and family, for one of the Light Up a life services on Monday 11 December at 4.30pm and 7pm at Worthing Assembly Hall. Everyone who joins us at one of the services will receive a special Light Up a Life candle to be lit at home in memory of a loved one.

Light Up a Life 2016If you are unable to attend an event, but would still like a candle, you can collect one from St Barnabas House in Titnore Lane, Worthing, or from any of our St Barnabas House charity shops.

We also invite everyone attending to bring along a photo of their loved one, which can then be pinned to our ‘Memory Wall’ displayed in the refreshments area of the Assembly Hall after each service. This collection of images and faces is a stirring and positive addition to what is already a poignant occasion.
