Remembrance Sunday (08/11/2020) The latest COVID-19 restriction have closed Churches for Public Worship so we are not able to mark Remembrance Sunday in our usual way. We are grateful to Rev Evan and Rev Pat for recording Video and Audio clips this week that we have been able to use to create a short service for Remembrance Sunday. This service includes Hymns performed by the Choir of St Martin in the Fields, London, Prayer, a bible reading and reflection by Rev Evan and our traditional Act of Remembrance led by Rev Pat during which the names on the 1914-18 War Memorial in Church and on the 1939-45 War Memorial outside Church are read. We hope this will enable us all to join together in remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country at the same time as we pray for peace now and in the future.
