IN 2020 it's been a very difficult year and continues to present difficulties to us as we seek to mark this special time of year. On Saturday 31st October St Nicholas Church will be open from 9.30am for anyone to come and light a candle to remember a loved one who has died. Revd James Sawyer intends to be present through the day. At 3.00pm there will be a service to remember those who have died as usual, but attendees will need to book in advance and in order to achieve the 2m social distancing, numbers will be limited to 26 Households.
A list of those whose memory we treasure is read out and we have
special prayers and an opportunity to light a candle in their memory.
If you would like a loved one remembered please let James know – 289258 or come to the service and add their name to a list which will be available until the service begins. It does not matter how long ago they died. We make a point of inviting all those who we have helped with funeral ministry this year, but everyone is welcome.
