Time to Remember
November brings us an opportunity to remember.
On the 1st of November we remember all the saints, those who have lived their lives within the Christian faith. We remember those whose stories have made them famous, some handed through generations, and those whose quiet faith is known only to God. We give thanks for thier example and remember that we are the saints of our generation.
The 2nd November is All Souls Day when we remember all those who have died. This year we've moved our remembering to the afternoon and evening of 1st November to make it possible for as many people as possible to join in. With so many people affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic it seems more important than ever to offer opportunities to remember those we love who have died in very personal ways. St Peter's Church at Brooke will be open in the afternoon for people to use as a space to come and remember and then, in the evening, there will be a special on-line service of Commemoration. There are more details in the events section of the web-site.
Our annual Remembrance Service will take place on Remembrance Sunday, 8th November, but for safety reasons we've made the decision that it will take place only on-line this year. The details are in the events section of the web-site. We know that many people will be disappointed by this but we have worked hard to make sure that all our villages are included and we will live in hope that we can gather at our war memorials again next year.
Everything that we plan at the moment has to be subject to change, so do keep an eye on our web-site as a way for us to let you know of any changes. If you subscribe you can receive e-mail notifications when new content has been added.
