From St James’ Church –

The Tree of Life can be found in the garden/church yard of St. James’ Episcopal Church, Arbuthnott Street

It has been decorated at Christmas for many years with baubles in memory of loved ones no longer with us.

The tree is for anyone and everyone of Stonehaven, the surrounding community and visitors to the town who would like to place a bauble on the tree in memory of their loved one.

Tree Available From Tuesday December 1

The effect is very simple yet stunning and can be accessed from either inside the garden/church yard or from the street.  The baubles are removed by 12th Night – 6th January.

We wish to see the tree decorated this year but where in previous years we have provided baubles and suitable marker pens we would ask everyone to bring their own signed bauble and place on the tree.  This way we reduce the possibility of cross-contamination, sadly a consequence of the pandemic Covid-19.

If you would like your bauble back please remove it from the tree before January 6th. We will place uncollected ones by the church door for a few days.
