I believe one of the things some people are missing being able to do is sit in a space of calm, such as a church, where we can find some space to think and light a candle.
At St Barnabas Little Ilford probably around 70% of our visitors through the week come to light a candle and to sit quietly. As we can’t currently have the church open for people to light candles we offer an opportunity for ‘proxy’ candle lighting at 7pm on Wednesday evenings from our Facebook page.
If you would like a candle lit and a name mentioned in the ‘Light a Candle’ prayer event please drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (If you wish to send just an initial or a codename to protect identities that is fine, we don’t need any other details to offer a prayer). From 7.00pm I shall light candles and pray – please join me. It’s also ok to offer names in the comments during the event.
May God bless and uphold you at this incredibly challenging time.
