Sunday 14th November 2021 provided the opportunity not just to have our usual Remembrance Sunday service but to hold a SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE  and mark in a special way the lives lost in our community during the recent Covid pandemic.  We felt very aware that for many, including members of our own church, it had been hard not being able to hold services of thanksgiving and celebration for the lives of people who had passed away.

The church decided to plant a magnolia tree outside church and at our service, a plaque to remember those in this community who passed away during the pandemic was unveiled while we marked a two-minute silence.

Back inside the church everyone was invited to ;light candles and later to share in the sacrament of bread and wine.

Thank you to the Brownies, Guides and Rangers who took part in our service, parading their flags, doing the bible readings and making gifts to hand out to members of the congregation at the end of the service .
