Our Remembrance Sunday service will begin at The War Memorial on Lavant Village Green where we shall lay wreaths in memory of those who died in time of war. This part of our service will begin promptly at 9.30 a.m. We shall then make our way to St Mary's for the continuation of our remembrance in the service which starts at 10.00 a.m. and includes holding a silence with the rest of the nation at 11.00 a.m.

As in previous years, the cash collections at next Sunday’s services will be given to the Royal British Legion. Some of the Legion’s own envelopes will also be placed in the pews and you are invited to make use of them so that the Royal British Legion may benefit from Gift Aid.

The theme of the Sunday@Six Service will also be Remembrance. This informal service at St Nicholas' will be an opportunity for people to talk about and share experiences of military service and war, a time to remember and reflect. We would very much like to hear from anyone who is willing to share their experiences, in particular if you have memories of the bombing of Chichester. Please speak to Shirley Whincop or ring David Gibson (tel: 779432).
