Tree of Light 2023

An evening to remember

St Catherine’s warmly welcomes you to Tree of Light

Traditionally, Christmas is a time for us to celebrate with family and friends, but we know that for those who are bereaved, it’s a time when we miss our loved ones even more. It can be a lonely time for many, so we would like to invite you to come together as a community and spend some time remembering those you have lost.

Join us for one of our Tree of Light remembrance services for music, a moment of silence, words of encouragement and a speaker who will share their story with you. You can dedicate a star in honour of your loved one, and there will also be options to donate for those who want.

We’re hosting two Tree of Light services this year, and hope that you will be able to join us at one of these:

Sunday 3 December, Reigate College (Paul Rispoli Theatre), 3pm (arrival from 2:30pm)  (Please note, we have extremely limited spaces left at our Reigate service. If you’d like to attend, please call us on 01293 447361.)
Sunday 10 December, Copthorne Effingham Hotel, 3pm (arrival from 2:30pm)

The services will be free to attend, but you will need to book your space. For those who are unable to attend, you can still have your loved one’s name/s included in the Book of Remembrance, by completing the booking form and selecting ‘I will not attend’. If you need any assistance, please call our Fundraising team on 01293 447361 or email fundraising@stch.org.uk
