LIGHTS OF LOVE CAROL SERVICE – CANCELLED

On this day we should have welcomed St Richards Hospice to our Abbey Church for their annual Lights of Love service.

As the event is not able to take place this year due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we ask you to think of all those who would have attended and to remember the amazing work of the charity.
