Bournemouth’s homeless and substance misuse Christmas Service of Remembrance is a major part of the church calendar for us.

Launched in 2010, through visionary work by Lee Marshall, this service has grown from strength-to-strength. The event continues to prove very poignant with over 250 people coming together to enjoy a service with Christmas carols, poetry, candles and a time of reflection – and to pay respect to friends and family who have passed away while struggling with homelessness or substance misuse.

Through pre-arrangement, members of the community are welcomed to share their memories, prayers and songs from the platform – where they can be assured of being in a safe place.
