All Souls Day – Service of Remembrance & Thanksgiving

Our annual All Souls Memorial Services will happen this year on Sunday 6 November:  3.30pm in St Mary’s & 6pm in St Giles’. We invite all the families of those for whom we have conducted funerals this year and we remember them in prayer first. But if you would like to come and remember someone precious to you, then you are of course most welcome too. Sign up lists go up in church from 16 October (or do send a message to one of the clergy). As always if you are unable to attend because of ill health or you are away, please add names. Otherwise if you are including names on the list to be remembered in prayer, we trust that you will be able to join us for the service.
