Remembrance Sunday

Please see below a message from the Rector regarding revised arrangements
for Remembrance Sunday in the light of updated restrictions and guidelines.

Dear All,
Usually all three Churches of the Parish would hold public Remembrance
Services. Unfortunately this year a large public gathering will not be possible at
any of the Churches.
A small act of Remembrance will be carried out by the Clergy and Readers of
the Parish along with a couple of members from the wider organisations.
At 11am a trumpeter will play the Last Post from the Churchyard in Curdworth
close to one of the War graves and we will attempt to make sure that this can
be heard across the Village.
I would like to encourage you to take part in the 11am doorstep silence.
As I am writing this it is with a heavy heart, but I am reminded that the reason
the poppy is a symbol of remembrance is because it was the first flower to
regrow in the Fields of the World War One battlefields after the end of the
conflict. I think this can be of comfort to us all at this time as out of adversity
God is able to do Amazing things.
Let us add our NHS heroes to the list of those who we remember this year.
With my prayers
Rev’d Noel
