Remembrance Sunday

November 11th 2018

On Sunday, November 11th our church family along with churches across the Country hosted a service of Remembrance.  This year was particularly poignant as it was marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.  Our church was appropriately decorated for the occasion thanks as always to our excellent flower arrangers but also to the students of St. Blasius C of E Primary Academy.

We were very pleased to receive pictures, poems and personal reflections prepared by the students on the theme of Remembrance and they were displayed on the Academy's board in the North Transept and on the noticeboard by our main entrance (see photos).  It is particularly meaningful that at this time when the surviving veterans of the Second World War are in their twilight years that members of such a young generation give us confidence that the past sacrifices made on their behalf will not be forgotten.

‘When You Go Home,

Tell Them Of Us And Say, 

For Their Tomorrow, 

We gave Our Today’.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
