Remembrance Sunday

This year we are holding our first ever outdoor service for Remembrance Sunday. We intend this to be something to serve the wider community. We will start promptly at 10:45am and will lay a wreath and observe the 2 minute silence. We will then finish the service at 11:15am followed by complimentary refreshments served in our church hall.

If you would struggle to stand for the duration of the service, then you are welcome to go into our main hall where you will be able to hear the audio of the service. If the weather is looking questionable then bring a brolly. Creche and Trailblazers groups for children will run for the duration of the service, so please get your children to their groups before we begin.


We are collecting items for the Eastern Valley Food Bank. The following items make up a typical food parcel and are recommended for bringing along:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tea or coffee
  • Sugar
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks

Alternatively, if you would rather donate money then please put any donations in an envelope marked Food Bank and drop it in one of the offering boxes.
