The Light Party
This is a Church event based at Knowle Park and is part-sponsored by the Parish Council. It is always held on 31 October 6-8pm each year to offer a Christian alternative to Halloween. The local Police and PCSO's also welcome the reduction in "tricking and treating". There will be inflatables, fairground rides and foodstuffs with ongoing presentations and invitations to audience participation from the MainStage in partnership with our Mission Partner Miracle Street. The use of light as a theme, immediately prior to All Souls and All Saints Day, enables to St Tom's to celebrate that Jesus is the Light of the World and the darkness has not overcome the light in an annual proclamation on behalf of the Parish. The fireworks round off our evening with a rousing show of light into the night-time sky!
We then invite people to Remembrance Sunday.
