Remembrance Sunday

Published by J Brown on

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. Lockdown restrictions mean that we won’t be able to meet in church or at the cenotaph us we have done in previous years. However, it is important that we remember those who have died in conflicts, both past and present.

Mission Area Zoom Service for Remembrance Sunday

To try to fit in with the national 2 mins silence at 11.00, we will start promptly at 10.45, and try to fit everything into our allotted 40 minutes.

The Order of Service is available here (you will need this). Some people who have recorded contributions for the video will not be able to join us, so please, as usual, come prepared to read at short notice, if you are willing.

There will also be a YouTube version of the service as usual, for you to revisit in your own time.
