Tuesday 23rd March is a National Day of Reflection where we are asked to support those who grieve and remember those who have died. This prayer has been written for the day and is helpful in times of grief.
Be with us as we think about all that has changed this year,
And help us to trust that you are always with us.
Be close to us as we remember those who have died,
And help us to trust they are at peace with you.
Show us how to reach out to others with kindness and care ,
So that hope shines out in every heart and home,

THE BAND that plays for the family service would really welcome new young musicians as us oldies would like to retire!

You do not need to be of a high standard. We normally meet on a Thursday evening, once a month, for an hour or so. Please talk to Rebecca for more information; 01398 331990, email@example.com
