On Sunday 6th November at 4pm, St Peter's will be holding a special service where those who have been bereaved can remember those they have loved before God. During the service the names of those being remembered will be read out and there will be a time to light a candle in memory of a loved one. All are welcome at this quiet service of reflection and thanksgiving, whether recently bereaved or giving thanks for the lives of those who have died many years ago. Refreshments will be served at the end of the service and there will be time to share memories of those we have loved but who rest now with God.
