Candlemas marks the end of the Christmas season.

It’s the time when we think of how Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the Temple. Simeon and Anna recognised Him as “The Light to lighten the gentiles and to be the glory of Israel”.

The service will last about an hour, and afterwards if you wish you can go on to the Children’s Society Candlelight Supper. See Ken Robinson for details.
