Light Up a Life

Remember and celebrate your loved ones.

Event details

Light Up a Life is our annual remembrance service held for the local community to celebrate the lives of loved ones no longer with us.

The death of a loved one can be felt very deeply, especially at Christmas, which is why Light Up a Life is so important. As we remember those we love, we can reflect on the joy they brought to our lives and be thankful for the time we had together.

Light Up a Life is also a celebration of everything St Barnabas House stands for – living life to the full and making the most of the time we have. Everyone is welcome to take part in readings, carols, and reflections in the company of others who are on the same journey.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year’s Light Up a Life. If you were unable to attend, we have made a video for you to watch below. Please check back later in the year for information about the 2024 service.

Location: Worthing Assembly Hall
When: Monday 9th December 2024 at 6:00pm
