Light up a Life: Ongar

Wednesday 4th December 2019
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
St Martin’s Church

Join us to remember and celebrate someone special…

Light up a Life is our Christmas-time celebration of everything that St Clare stands for – standing side by side with families from across our community in honour of their loved ones who are no longer with us.

This year, seven unique services will be held throughout our catchment area in November and December with carols, music, readings in the company of those who understand. Candles are lit at each service, every shining light representing the life and memories of a loved one. Everyone, of all faiths and none, is welcome to attend these free services, not just those who have experienced St Clare’s support first-hand.

Our Ongar event will be held at the St Martin’s Church on Wednesday 4th December 2019 at 4.00pm. Car parking is available on the High Street, Sainsbury’s car park or the Library car park.
