The arrangements for Remembrance Sunday are slightly different this year. The Eucharist will be celebrated at 8am as normal. The Parish Eucharist will begin promptly half an hour earlier than usual, at 9.30am. The service will be slightly shortened, with a brief address. Coffee will be served afterwards in the Hall while the church is prepared for the next service. When you’ve had your coffee you can make your way to the War Memorial, where the Rector, together with town representatives and the Royal British Legion, will lead the Act of Remembrance at 10.50am, including the Two Minutes’ Silence. The procession will then go to the church for the Remembrance Service. There will be a retiring collection for the Royal British Legion. Evensong takes place at 6.30pm as usual.
On Armistice Day, which this year falls the day before Remembrance Sunday, the Rector will lead prayers and the Silence at the War Memorial at 11am. The Silence will also be observed in the Church Hall during Coffee & Chat.
