ALL Saints is holding a Light of Hope service next weekend.

The Rev Richard Burge said: “There seems to be a lot of things weighing people down at the moment. The pressures of the economic situation, friends who are sick or have died, the recent events in Japan and New Zealand and the unrest in Libya.

“March 26 is when British summertime begins, so what better day for people to come together and pray for light in the darkness.”

The service is open to everyone and starts at 4.30pm.
