Weekly Remembrance Services

Wednesdays at 5pm


“The focus of what we’re doing is God’s love and care for every single person…
their name is read, a candle is lit”


Short (approx 1/4 hour) services every Wednesday at 5pm to remember each individual who made the ultimate sacrifice in the week of the 100th anniversary of their death.  Everyone is welcome and there is the chance to light a candle, lay a wreath or read the name of your relative.
