Cransley Hospice Tree of Lights Remembrance Service 2014

This annual service is now around 20 years old and once again the Kettering Citadel Band provided the music to accompany the singing. The ‘Tree of Lights’ Memorial Service for those connected with Cransley Hospice in Kettering was held in Jubliee Gardens and was, as always, well attended. For those gathered it’s a time to sing, to pray and to remember. The Reverend Dr John Smith, Patron, and for many years before his retirement, Consultant at the Hospice led the service. Various members of the community read passages of scripture or specially chosen readings and prayers for the occasion. A newly formed choir, Cransley Community Choir also sang, having been formed in recent months to take part in a choir competition to raise much needed funds for the Hospice. Rev. Dr Smith updated those gathered of plans to extend the provision of care and support offered by the staff at Cransley in the months to come. He also took the opportunity to thank those gathered for their support. For many attending it would be their first such Memorial Service and for others, they may have been attending for many years, which ever it is, it can be a difficult service for many gathered for various reasons. Please remember to pray for those who have suffered loss and for the Cransley Hospice staff who provide excellent care and service not only to the patients but to their families too.
