Parish comes together for Remembrance Sunday

Uniformed organisations and civic dignitaries join local congregation to observe Remembrance Sunday.

Parish comes together for Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday was observed once again this year with two services within the Parish. Our morning service at St. James, Ince saw the local Beavers, Cubs and Scouts march to the church before joining other members of the congregation in a thought-provoking act of remembrance and the traditional two minutes silence. In the weeks leading up to Remembrance Sunday, the uniformed groups spent time reflecting on the meaning of remembrance and the importance of this key date in the nation's calendar. Two lovely items of artwork were presented during the service around the theme 'We Will Remember Them' and can be seen in the photographs accompanying this article.

At our evening Remembrance Sunday Civic Service, the Mayor of Ellesmere Port joined the congregation together with representatives of the Royal British Legion, Elton Parish Council and Ince Parish Council. Wreathes were laid in the sanctuary of the church following the act of remembrance which started with a moving rendition of the Last Post and ended with the Reveille. Many thanks to one of our congregation members, Geoff, for playing the traditional bugle calls.
