Light up a Life at Home

A virtual Christmas celebration

Watch the online service from the comfort of your own home

This year things are a little different and getting together for our annual Light up a Life Celebration event sadly just wasn’t possible. Knowing how important this service is to many families across the region, we chose to host a virtual service for everyone to join in with from home.

The service is available to watch on this page below thought December. You can also tune in to Radio Tyneside on 93.6 FM to listen to the service on again on Christmas Eve.

We hope this will be a way for us all to come together to celebrate life when we can’t be together in person, and that the service will bring you some peace and comfort.

Thank you to North East based Turps Film, our video production partner for our first virtual Light up a Life at Home service.

Dedicate a light for your loved one

You can dedicate a light on our Tree of Lights by making a donation to St Oswald’s Hospice in your loved one’s name. We’ll send you a card and star decoration to display at home.

Dedications can still be made but please make yours by 18th December to ensure your card is received in time for Christmas.

Tree of lights

A beautiful light installation with a Christmas Tree centrepiece is displayed outside of St Oswald’s Hospice on Regent Avenue in Gosforth this December. The lights were switched on as part of the Light up a Life service on Sunday 6th December.

You are welcome to visit the Tree of Lights which will be lit every evening until the end of December. Each light will sparkle in memory of someone special, as a symbol of hope and love for our North East community this Christmas.
