Lighting candles at the Carol Service

Evening of Hope 2023 (Carol Service)

Every year we join together in solidarity and hope at Christmas to remember those missing to us, and those whom we have lost. 

Families, people who have been missing, supporters, staff and volunteers come together for a very special Carol Service at this poignant time of year.

Evening of Hope 2023

Join us on Monday 11th December from 6:30 pm for our Evening of Hope at Christmas.

The service will be held at St Mary Abbots Church, Kensington Church Street, London, W8 4LA

  • Doors Open 6pm
  • Service starts 6.30pm
  • Service ends 7.30pm
  • Refreshments – 7.30pm – 9pm
  • Exit – 9pm

Join us for traditional carols, moving musical performances and readings from those with lived experience. Plus, get an exclusive look into how your support helps us to be a lifeline when someone disappears.

The evening will also feature some very special performances by the Missing People Choir.

For those who are unable to attend the event in person, there will also be an option to watch a recording of the evening at a later date. 

“I’m so happy to attend this event. It is such a special time to be able to remember loved ones in a beautiful Christmas service. Meeting others in the same position also helps.”
