Getting involved in Light up a Life is a wonderful way to remember a loved one - whether they received care from our Hospice or not - at Christmas time. 

You can include your loved one's name in our Book of Remembrance, which will be displayed at all three of our Light Up A Life remembrance services (see below), request a special Dedication Card to remember a loved one or dedicate a star and have it displayed in our beautiful gardens for the whole of December until Twelfth Night (6th January). Please call 01708 723593 for more details. 

Another way to support is by lighting up our digital Night Sky (details below). 

Our Light up a Life Night Sky shows the view from Saint Francis Hospice, across the hills to London. Be a part of Light up a Life and dedicate a star in memory of your loved one. You can make it personal by adding a photo and your own words. Then, their star will shine brightly in the sky for the whole festive period. 


As part of Light Up A Life, we also hold three celebration events where we invite our local community to join us, to reflect and remember the lives of loved ones who were, and are still, so special to us. Each services is free and offered to all. 

Our three services, which are all now SOLD OUT, will take place as follows:

  • Sunday 1st December at St John the Evangelist Church, Havering-atte-Bower at 3pm
  • Sunday 8th December at Brentwood Cathedral at 4pm
  • Sunday 15th December at Saint Francis Hospice grounds at 4pm


Please call 01708 723593 or email srt@sfh.org.uk if you have any questions about your tickets.
