St John’s Church are planning special events to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.
On Saturday 10th November we will be holding a Coffee Morning in the Parish Room. In Church and the Parish Room there will be displays to remember the men from the parish who died in the war. We are asking for family members and relatives of those who took part in the First World War to submit photos, etc. for another display.
There will be a prayer tree in church for visitors to attach messages, if they so wish.
The event runs from 10.30a.m. until 3p.m.
Light refreshments will be available throughout the day.
On Sunday 11th November there will be a service of remembrance starting at 10.45a.m., when we will observe the two minutes silence & the names from the War Memorial will be read out.
These events are open to everyone & especially to anyone who has a relative named on our memorial.

All proceeds from the Saturday Event will be donated to the ‘HELP for HEROES’ charity.

Mission Purpose Statement:
We are called by God to know Jesus through worship and discipleship.
