Remembrance Day 2016

One the Sunday 13th December, we joined with people all over the country at 11 am to sit in silence and remember those that died in war, those that war affected and those places that war is not just history, but is happening now.

Our Junior Church made a wreath to place on our memorial plaques, learning about why we use the poppy to remember those fallen in war. One of our church members also embroidered the verse from the famous poem For the Fallen by Robert Binyon:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
