2nd Of November 'The Festival of All Souls' 

The festival of All Souls is a beautiful service of Holy Communion in which we come together to remember and to re-commit into God's loving care those whom we have loved and lost over the years.

Each person remembered has their name read out by the Clergy at the celebration of the Holy Communion and a candle is lit in memorial for each person, these candles are placed on the Altar during the service.

We remember in this way the hope presented to us all in Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

'May the Souls of the faithful departed rest in peace and rise again in glory'

If you would like to attend this service of remembrance and have a relative or other loved one re-dedicated into the loving hands of Almighty God, then please contact the Vicar the Revd David W John or the Benefice Office.
