St Mary-le-Tower Church Service

We understand that the loss of a loved one can be felt more deeply during Christmas.

Our special service on Sunday 17 December in Ipswich town centre will allow you time to remember whilst being surrounded by love and warmth.

During the service, we will come together with friends and family to share and reflect on precious memories of those we hold close to our hearts.

There is no need to book this event. We encourage everyone to light a candle at the service in honour of your loved one/s.

The venue is accessible. There is parking available at nearby public car parks. 

Please note that there will some filming at the event for promotional purposes by the St Elizabeth Hospice team.

Dedicate to our Tree of Love

We invite you to write a personal message to your loved one/s on special Memory Stars which will be displayed on the Tree of Love at the Church. You can dedicate online to have your star included, with a donation to the hospice so we can care for more patients and families this Christmas.

Click the link below to dedicate by Wednesday 13 December to ensure your star is included.
