Lest We Forget

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, we have a weekend of remembrance in All Saints’ church.

On Friday, 9th November at 7.30pm, Bishop Brian Castle will be giving a lecture on reconciliation.  Entitled ‘At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them – remembering through the lens of reconciliation’, the lecture reminds us that the way we remember the past affects the present, and shapes the future.

The traditional Royal British Legion service of Remembrance will start at 10.55am on the 11th November in the church.

At 7.30pm on 11th November, there will be a evening of poetry, prose and music to mark the anniversary of the end of the First World War.  With a wide range of readings, the evening will be both touching and thought-provoking.

From October 21st, there will be an opportunity for villagers to remember family and/or friends who have died or been injured in conflicts since 1914.  A Wall of Remembrance will be put up in the church for people to add their personal messages of remembrance.  Tributes should be no bigger than A4 in size (for each person honoured) but may be accompanied by photos, if available.
