Streets of Light
Monday 26 October to Sunday 1 November
The Streets of Light initiative first ran in Sheffield in 2017, and is held every year over the October half term holiday that coincides with Halloween. Last year over 140 houses, shops and businesses took part – and we would love to see this grow. This year the light has spread even further, with churches from Harrogate and Leeds down to Loughborough and taking part.
We’ll be encouraging people to sign up over the next couple of weeks – it’s a simple yet effective way of reflecting Christ’s light to those around us, as well as being something we can all do as a church family from the comfort of our own homes.
To get involved all you need to do is to decorate one (or more!) windows of your house, flat or workplace, and then leave the lights on or curtains open each evening, so people can see your fantastic displays.
Nearer the time, all the houses or buildings taking part will be plotted onto various trails and maps, and posted on the Streets of Light website and other social media platforms.
Families and friends can then either walk or run together (in groups of 6!), trying to spot as many fantastic window displays as possible!If you’d like to register fill in this form on the STC Sheffield website
We’re signed up as a church too! We’ll be decorating the window at the front of the building where the blue settees used to be. Becki and Kate will be delivering packs to as many children in church as possible so they can contribute to the window. We will be in touch!
