Christmas Candlelight Service of Remembrance.

The Children’s Bereavement Centre would like to invite you and your family and friends to join our virtual Christmas Candlelight Service on Friday December 11th at 6.30pm on our Facebook page @CBCNewark

Even though we cannot be together in Church as usual this year, we can still come together to remember and celebrate the lives of our loved ones.

We hope you will join us for this very special socially distanced service in your home with readings, lighting candles and songs by the Barnby Road School Choir, our Young Ambassadors, staff and volunteers.

You can also include photographs of your loved ones as well as their names as part of the Service. If you would like to have your loved one’s photo and name included, please email them before Monday November 23rd to

(Please be aware that by submitting a photo and name you are giving us permission to publish both on Facebook as part of the Candlelight Service).

For further information about the Service please contact us on 01636 551739 or via email

We hope you can join us.
