Service of Light

The Service of Light 2021 

Christmas can be a special and memorable time for children and families, but for some families the significance of the festive period can hold a greater poignancy.

Each year the hospital and Trust teams work together to produce a Service of Light. Following the success of last year's virtual service, we have once again put together a short film. The aim of this service is to honour and remember the lives of children cared for at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and to reach out to bereaved families and friends with a message of love, hope and peace at this important time of year.

The service includes the lighting of a remembrance candle. As you watch, you may like to have your own candle ready to light as we light ours.
