A congregation of some 200 persons gathered at the Church door last Sunday for a short service of remembrance. Members of the Girls Brigade, Boys Brigade and Scouts paraded and read the names of those from the parish who had died during the two world wars and recent conflicts. Wreathes were laid at the memorial plaque in the Church foyer.
Morning worship took the form of a family service and included the two minute act of remembrance with each pew bearing a white cross with the name of a person who had given their life. Rev Andrew Rooney included two short talks: “What we Remember” and “Lasting Peace?” in the service. The retiring offering at the close of the service for the Earl Haig fund yielded £233.
The Youth Fellowship met after the evening service for a Bake Off.
The officers and girls of the Girls Brigade wish to thank everyone who responded so generously to the annual Shoebox Appeal; a total of 98 boxes were returned.
