Light a Candle

Those of you who visit churches whilst on holiday or travelling will have often seen Votive Candle Stands where you may light and leave a candle as a living sign of a prayer, to cherish the memory of a loved one, to give thanks, or merely to contemplate where you are in the grand scheme of life.
There is now such an opportunity in the parish church of St Andrew’s in Moretonhampstead; it can be found in the Lady Chapel, near the small altar on the right-hand side of the nave.
It is available for our community and visitors alike, including all who have no specific commitment to the Christian faith.  If you wish, you may leave a small donation but it is by no means necessary or expected.
Each year, a charity is chosen and the whole of that year’s candle donations is made to it.
