Remembered in Love

The annual Church service to remember loved ones who have died was held on Sunday 29 October. A congregation of over 80 were welcomed by Simon Stranks who explained the pattern of the service. People would be invited to place a white carnation into a cross and then as each name is read out a candle will be lit to remember them.

The reflection, given by Reader Gillian Kern, and the reflections read by Kath Bell and Michael Olney focussed on the love that there was for those who have died and the light and joy they brought to our lives. Refreshments were served following the service and many of the congregation remained to speak with relatives, friends and neighbours and to share their experiences.
