Remembrance at St Mary's

5 Nov 2020, 10 a.m.

For obvious reasons the usual Remembrance Sunday service in Church  cannot happen this year. A short act of Remembrance will be held at the war memorial in the churchyard on Sunday 8th and wreathes laid. However, due to the Covid regulations, attendance is limited to those who have received a specific invitation to represent an organisation.  We ask you not to come otherwise, we will not be able to let you in to the Churchyard.  Why not show your support  by marking “remembrance at home”, standing at your door as we honour the fallen and keep the two minutes silence at 11am. You may like too to share in saying this prayer.

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those people who have been injured or who have died in active service. As we honour their courage and cherish their memory, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life, peace and hope, now and for ever. Amen.
