Special service of Remembrance designed for children

On Saturday October the 20th 2018 at 4pm we will be holding a special service of remembrance in church, designed to help children remember loved ones who have died. The act of remembrance, of keeping people’s memories alive, helps us to process grief and loss.

Children are encouraged to bring a photograph of someone special to them who has died. They will be able to place the photograph in a dedicated space and leave flowers, light a candle, say a prayer and sing a song as part of the service. Everyone is welcome to come along, a collection will be made in aid of  Just B bereavement support. 

The service will be preceded by a free screening in the hall of the Disney Pixar movie “Coco”. Refreshments will be available. If you would like to attend the film and the service email bookings@stwilfrid.org to reserve a place.
