A church in Llandudno will begin its preparation for Christmas with a service using only candles.
St Paul’s in Craig y Don will be lit only by the glow of hundreds of flickering flames for the annual “Darkness to Light” event on Sunday 24th November 2019 at 4.30pm.
The service includes music from the church choir – who also have to sing only by candlelight – and readings and reflections on the true meaning of Christmas, and on the season of Advent, the four weeks which come before 25th December.
Rev Noel Carter, Rector of St Paul’s Church said: “we hope this will be an oasis of calm as life starts to get busy over the next few weeks.
“This is one of the most atmospheric events of the year – there’s something magical about the warm light of the candles.
“The church is also decorated with hand made lanterns, created by people from Llandudno in a community event a few weeks ago, which will be providing extra light and a sense of occasion to the event.”
