The Remembrance Sunday service at St Bartholomew's will take place from at 10:30am and be live streamed. It will include all the usual elements of the annual Act of Remembrance, including live and specially recorded segments. It will be live streamed on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/StBartsOtford) and the church website (https://www.stbartholomews.co.uk) to allow as many who would usually come along to take part remotely. Many in the village will be standing outside their houses to mark the two-minute silence and that will be reflected in the service. You will also find attached a photograph of the gathering at the village War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday 2018, the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Following the service at 11:15am there will be a linked screening of a ten-minute video presentation of Otford during the Second World War. This will be live on the Facebook Otford Village Hub (https://www.facebook.com/groups/otfordhub). The video presentation was produced by Phil Clucas with the technical support of Barbara Darby and uses archive material provided by Ed Thompson and other committee members of the Otford-based ‘1940s Society’.
