Remembrance Sunday

Guest Preacher Ed Fordham

This year is unusual – not only is it ‘Remembrance Sunday’, but we hold it in the context of the 100th Anniversary of World War One. A conflict in which so many from this Chapel fought and died. This service will be evocative and thoughtful and will reflect the work, pain, anguish and struggle of all sides and in particular of the women who found themselves picking up the pieces as men went to war. We shall be recording the service and will share that as soon as possible. The Chapel Choir will perform excerpts from Brahms’ Requiem, as part of the Remembrance Day morning service. This Mass, although written in the traditional form, has a Humanist approach

Sunday 9 November (7pm) –  Evening Gathering

‘Meditation’ – Led by Ingrid Tavkar

‘The essence of meditation is simply to reach a ‘state of being’ – Come and join us for silence, reflection, poetry and music

Children’s Programme – This Sunday, the children of our chapel will also mark Remembrance Day by continuing our exploration of how we can act and work peacefully with each other.  We will make our own poppies to honour those who have lost their lives in war and our own peace doves as a reminder to work for peace in our world.

Flowers Dedicated this Remembrance Sunday are sponsored by Ed Fordham.
