We will remember them...

The Church was decorated with poppies on Remembrance Sunday (red symbolising sacrifice and white for peace) as the Parish joined in prayer for those who fought and gave their lives for their country, for those are bereaved and grieve the loss of a loved one and for peace throughout the world.


The children made a beautiful, handprint poppy wreath during their liturgy which was brought up at the Offertory and displayed on the altar.



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.


From Laurence Binyon's poem
For the Fallen, written in September 1914
