This year Remembrance Sunday (11th November) marks the centenary of the end of the First World War.
For a service of Different Voices, we would like to invite the congregation to share any stories, pieces of writing, or memorabilia of the war years which they might have, and which would help us to commemorate this significant event.
So, if you’ve got any letters, diaries, artefacts or bits of family history you’d be willing to share in a Remembrance Service, please let us know. Contact the Church Office or any member of the Worship Group.
If you have something which you would like us to consider including in the service, please try and get it to us before 11th October.

After a splendid choral contribution on Easter Sunday with Haydn’s “Creation”, I hope that these “voices” will sing at the Remembrance Service on Sunday 11th November. The music is two movements from “The Armed Man” by Karl Jenkins. This Mass for Peace is particularly poignant for this Sunday as it will be exactly 100 years since the end of the Great War. There will be three rehearsals on Sundays 21st and 28th October, and 4th November, from 5 to 6pm in the church, and I should be delighted to see as many as possible.
