Cross of Remembrance

Our morning Remembrance Sunday service this year was all-age worship, and was led by our Minister, Revd Liz Blair.

In a thought-provoking service, we were asked to consider how we ourselves would be remembered by generations to come, and we were encouraged to be peacemakers, ready to spread forgiveness and reconciliation.

At 11.00, one of our Second World War veterans hung a poppy wreath on the war memorial, and we kept the two minutes’ silence, begun with the sound of a bugle playing the last post and reveille.

The children and young people read out the names of those of our church who had been killed in the two World Wars, and planted poppies in a cross formation at the front of the church.
