A Star In Memory

As we enter the festive period, we understand this time of year can be very difficult when going through a bereavement. Christmas is often a time when loved ones come together and celebrate, but it is also a time when we miss those who we have loved and lost the most. It’s a time when their absence is strongly felt.

Once again, we are sponsoring Christmas trees in the churches of St Andrew’s Alexandra Park, at St Martin’s Church in Gospel Oak and in the Christmas Tree Festival at All Saint’s Church, Child’s Hill. We are providing an opportunity for our families, and members of the parishes, to write and hand a star in  memory of their loved ones on their preferred tree. The name can be written alone or accompanied by a short message.

Many people took the opportunity to write on a star last year and told us how comforting they found it to see their loved ones’ name hung on the tree. Here are just some of the responses we have received.

“I think it’s a wonderful idea and would love to take part”

“I think it’s a brilliant way of remembering our loved ones”

This year, All Saints’ Church will be holding a Grand Opening of their festival on 9th December 2023 from 3pm – 6pm, and the other trees will be up from 18th December. All the trees will remain in place throughout the Christmas season should people wish to go to find their star or to hang one. You are welcome to drop into our branches at Golders Green, Kentish Town and Muswell Hill to write a star if you are unable to reach one of the churches.
