At the Fresh Expressions pilgrimage day in Coventry Carl brought some blue LED lights and wrapped them around the altar, under layers of netting. They looked brilliant, but I must admit I thought the 60 pound price tag was a little steep, even if you did get 480 lights for that price. I did make a mental note to check out the sales and see if they had gone down in price tho!
I was a little late getting to the sales though. I only made it into the shops last week, but actually I was glad I'd left it so late, as the lights I wanted had been reduced to 30, then 20, then 10. So if you're around B and Q it might be worth seeing if there are any left. Changing the lighting is such an easy way to make a space new and wonderful. Some of my best buys were the LED par cans I bought (which were around 40 pounds each). They look great when pointed at twiddly stonework and just add so much atmosphere (and can be plugged in in a couple of seconds).
