Service of Commemoration & Evensong for All Souls 5th Nov 5pm

We would like to invite you to the annual Service of Commemoration on Sunday 5th November.  This is a special service of Choral Evensong (held at All Souls tide) when we remember all our loved ones who are no longer with us.

During this quiet service of reflection and thanksgiving there will be an opportunity to light a candle if you would like to do so, and also to have your loved one’s name read out by the minister during the prayers.

The Service of Commemoration will begin at 5.00 p.m. and light refreshments will be served afterwards. It would be lovely if you were able to join us and we look forward to welcoming you, together with any friends or family you might like to bring with you.

If you have any questions about the service please do not hesitate to telephone the Church Office on 01403-253762.  Please be assured of our continued prayers, that all who grieve may know themselves held in God’s love and peace.
