Light Trail 2020

30th September 2020

Over the years many parishes have held light parties in October bringing light and joy to many families. This year we can’t do it in quite the same way but our families still need ‘light in the darkness’ – so we have created a simple resource that you might like to try instead.

‘Light Night’ is a simple way to invite families in your community to follow a trail of light around your neighbourhood, reflecting on the light of Christ in a gentle, fun and accessible way. It is perfect for sharing with Sunday School, Children’s Groups and Messy Church Families.

All you need to do:

  • 5 or 10 households in a walkable distance from each other create a light display in a front window or garden, using the simple templates. Each light stop links to a Bible verse.
  • Use the template to create a downloadable booklet, and invite families to take part.

In the resource:

  • All the templates you will need to create a customisable light trail
  • A draft risk assessment for you to customise
  • A ‘how to stay safe on your light trail’ (PDF)
  • All the information you need to get going
