All Souls – A Time to remember

The time around All Souls' Day is when the church particularly remembers departed loved ones. This year we will be holding a  service of prayer for all those who wish to remember and give thanks for those they have lost. The service will be at 3pm at St Alban's on Sunday November 3 This can be a meaningful service for everyone who has lost someone they love - either recently or a long time ago. It is for those whose grief is still raw and for those who have come to terms with their loss and an opportunity to remember and give thanks for those who have travelled on life's journey with us. During the service there will be an opportunity to light a candle for your loved one(s) and to hear their name read out in our litany of  remembrance. If you would like a name or names read out, please contact the parish office either by phone 973 1562 or by email...
