Christmas is a time for celebration, but it can also be a time of sadness as we remember loved ones who are no longer with us. Light up a Life offers the opportunity to come together, with a series of celebration services across Cornwall.
Our popular Light up a Life service at Truro Cathedral comprises carols, prayers, readings and music by children from a local school. During the service the lights on the Christmas tree outside will be switched off and during the last carol the tree is relit symbolising the lives of those we are remembering. Those in the cathedral can watch this on a screen during the service. After the service join us for refreshments where the remembrance books will be displayed. The books will remain in the Cathedral and can be viewed at certain times on Wednesdays and Saturdays during December. There will also be card stars available for you to write a personal message and hang on the main Cathedral tree.
