10.30am – Church Services of Celebration and Commemoration
Services will take place in cathedrals and churches throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man in celebration of the peace we share today. We will remember those who lost their lives or returned home dreadfully wounded and pay tribute to those who put their lives on hold at home to keep the nation fed and the factories, mines and hospitals working, many of them not knowing if their loved ones would return home safely.
Those planning services are encourage to invite other faiths from within their local communities to attend and participate. Organisers are also being asked to invite the Dean, Lord Mayor, Mayor, Lord Lieutenant, DL, High Steward, Sheriff, other faith representative or another local dignitary from their local community to read out the Tribute to the Millions during their service, which can be downloaded here.
You might also consider inviting a bugler or trumpeter from the local Air Training Corps, Army Cadets, Sea Cadets, Combined Cadet Force, Boys’ Brigade, Scouts, Salvation Army or brass band to play the Last Post and Reveille during their service.
