Monday 2nd November 202019:00All Souls' Service
This very important and special service will be rather different this year, as I’m sure you expected, but we will be very much remembering those we love but see no longer. St John’s church will be open as a place of stillness and reflection. Gentle music, projected images and suggested prayers may be of some comfort to you as you are invited to sit for a short while with your thoughts and pray. You will be offered a candle to light and the opportunity to write your loved ones name and/or a short message on a heart before hanging it on a tree as you leave church. Members of clergy will be available should you wish to talk or pray with them. We will be complying with all government guidelines and appreciate your support in social distancing, hand sanitising and providing your name and contact details for Track & Trace. Cleaning will be ongoing throughout the hour and a half.
19:00All Souls' Service
We will be live streaming (on Facebook) a very short memorial, where we will read the names of those who we know have died over the past 12 months and light a candle in memory of them. You are welcome to join us on Facebook and we encourage you to light a candle and remember your loved one with us at this time from home. Due to the necessary changes we will not be collecting names on sheets at the back of church this year.
