Remembrance Sunday

This year Remembrance Sunday providentially falls on 11 November; on the exact day 100 years after the end of the First World War. To mark this centenary  Jack planned the service so that it  the same but different. Instead of the organ leading the singing Dr Lance Whitehead had magnificently managed to bring together a brass ensemble for which he had written out the various parts for all the hymns. Sandra Holt has ordered eight Perspex cut outs to represent fallen soldiers from the Great War through which whose absence is accentuated. Maureen Bowman has made a pulpit fall display of poppies created by various members of the congregation. Finally, wreathes will be laid at the three memorials by members of the congregation whose relatives had fought in the First World War.

The service begins at 10.45am and we warmly welcome any visitors from the community who wish to participate in this special national occasion.
