4th Nov: All Souls Service at St Nicholas

4th November 2018: All Souls Service

This was a moving service attended by 80 people, who had come to remember loved ones, who are sadly no longer with us.

The prayers, hymns, readings and sermon created an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity and re-assurance, in which to meditate and recall memories. The names of the dear departed were read in a dimmed church, lit only by candles.

At the end of the service, there was opportunity to light tea-lights of remembrance, which were arranged on a cross, as can be seen below.

Many stayed after the service for coffee or tea, with a chance to talk with friends.

 

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen
