Using our Spirelight Journal for cherished memories

Here at St Paul’s we have a vision of having loved ones honoured and remembered through the beacon of Christian light that is our spirelight. We would love to have a name or names for every night of the year so that the light that illuminates our spire to the world shines for someone and is not merely “empty” light!

As of November 2020 we commemorate 283 people over 191 days of the year.

You are invited to participate by entering the names of loved ones, and the reason or occasion of their inclusion, into the journal that we keep on our Remembrance windowsill. Others will on occasion read the journal, and possibly your entry. Names of those remembered will be printed in our quarterly magazine and displayed on our outside notice board.

We seek more names and invite everyone to add to our lists. Family loved ones, special friends, maybe entering someone more than once – birthdate, baptism, confirmation, marriage, other significant dates? Please feel free to help us to achieve an entry for every day of the year.

Names, dates and dedications can be sent to Len Stevens, 78 Ashgrove Road, Goodmayes IG3 9XD who will enter them into the journal on your behalf when distance or Covid regulations create barriers.

There is no set fee or expectation of payment for inclusion, although contributory donations to the St Paul’s are, as always, welcome and appreciated.
