The Sole Bay Team Ministry-Annual All Soul’s Service

Sunday 1st November 3pm, St.Margaret’s Church, Reydon

Every year on or near All Souls Day, churches up and down the land hold special services of remembering. These provide an opportunity for people to come and remember their loved ones. It is equally appropriate for people who lost a loved one a long time ago or very recently. The service will last about an hour and it will be simple, quiet and peaceful. We will read out the names of those to be remembered and you will be invited to light a candle to their memory if you wish. Please tell other members of your family, your friends and neighbours and invite them all to come along. It is a time for quiet reflection and peace.
