Carols by Candlelight 2019

Join us for Launchpad’s annual Carols by Candlelight service and mark the start of the festive season in a truly special way. Now in it’s 12th year, Launchpad’s much-loved carol service, Carols by Candlelight, will once again mark the start of the festive season at the beautiful Reading Minster.

Join a congregation of hundreds on Thursday 5 December from 6pm to enjoy traditional Christmas carols, a children’s choir and special guest speakers – all to raise vital funds for Launchpad.

All proceeds go directly to Launchpad, allowing us to continue our crucial work to prevent homelessness in Reading, both over the festive season and all year round.
