Service for the Bereaved
Sunday 1 November 2020, 2.00pm, Hertford St Andrew's
Every year, on the first Sunday of November, we hold a special service of remembrance at St Andrew's. We invite those whose loved ones have died in recent years (usually within the last two years) to attend the service. We hope that this service can happen in some form in 2020 - we will follow the guidance from the Church of England and Public Health England and post more details nearer the time.
Those who have died are remembered by name. There is music and some readings and, importantly, an opportunity to light a candle in memory of your loved one.
Refreshments are served at the end, so do please stay for tea or coffee if you would like to.
All are very welcome to attend this special service. We contact families about a month before the service; if you haven't had a letter or email from us and would like the name of your loved one to be read out during the service, please contact the Parish Administrator.
The thoughts of someone who has attended the Service for the Bereaved: 'Always a very heart-warming service, it does give such comfort, peace and time for thought.'
