Remembrance Day Service
Sunday November 11th is the 100th anniversary of Armistice. During worship at St. Andrew’s that morning we will hold a special service commemorating this event and reflecting on how as Christians we hold in tension our desire for peace while honouring those who have fought in war.
For the Fallen
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam.
