remembering: 1 November

Normally we would hold a special service of Remembering for those we have loved but see no more, followed by a social gathering in the village hall.  As this will not be possible this year, we are instead opening up all our churches for a time of individual quiet reflection and the opportunity to light a candle in remembrance of loved ones who are no longer with us. In the afternoon of 1st November, churches will be open at the following times:

St Leonard’s, Birdingbury2.00 – 4.15 pm
St Peter’s, Bourton2.00 – 3.00 pm
St Nicholas, Frankton2.00 – 3.00 pm
All Saints, Stretton2.00 – 4.00 pm

Everyone is welcome. Please contact a church warden if you have any questions.
Please note that wearing a face covering in now mandatory in church.

A Prayer from the Church of England:

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
