Peacelight Ceremony 2019

Surrey County have invited us again this year to join them for the Peacelight ceremony at Bentley Copse, Hound House Road, Guildford GU5 9JH on Friday 20 December.

Interest from GLSW has grown over the past 4 years, and some of our Explorer Scouts have been involved in reading prayers during the act of worship. Please circulate to GSLs and I suggest reply direct to Mary Osborne with numbers.

To all District Commissioners; District Scout Active Support Units and County Team Members.

The International Peace Light from Bethlehem is arriving at Bentley Copse on Friday 20 December 2019. This flame starts its journey at the Grotto of Christís birth where a Muslim Scout passes the flame to a Jewish Scout and then onto a Christian Scout for distribution around the world so that people can burn the flame in their homes and churches over Christmas.

All Districts are asked to send a representative from their Districts and Groups to take the light back to share with their leaders and youngsters. The Active Support Units of our County will also be represented.

Mulled wine and minced pies will be served in the PALMER LODGE followed by a short Peace Light Ceremony in Bentley Open Air Chapel weather permitting).

The Venue is Bentley Copse and the time for the social gathering is 7.45p.m. The Peace Light Ceremony will begin when everyone has arrived (at approximately 8.00p.m)

Your presence would be very welcome. The light can be taken from Bentley Copse at any time after this date. (Contact the Warden to arrange a suitable time for collection). Instructions for safe transport are available on the web.

Please let Mary Osborn (Surrey County Scout Active Support Unit Manager) know as soon as possible how many will be able to join in this special ceremony.
