Rev Paul Howes led our Remembrance Sunday morning service.
His subject throughout the service was “See the BIGGER Picture”.
He spoke with the children and got them to do a simple jigsaw to remind us how things come together to form a Bigger Picture. He also talked about poppies, and we heard the poem “To the Unknown Soldier”.
At 11am we joined with millions globally and stood for 2 minutes silence to honour those who gave their lives in conflict worldwide.
