End of WW1 Anniversary Weekend
Updated: Oct 23, 2018
To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War we are celebrating this occasion in a very special way.
During the summer, St. Bart’s received a very special award of silhouettes funded by the Armed Services Covenant Trust. This award was made under the Armistice and Armed Forces Communities programme, which makes awards to bring communities together to remember; and think about Armed Forces today. The memorial in St.Bart’s has 18 names engraved whom lost their lives in WW1, and we have researched as much as we could to find out about their links with church, where they lived and where they are buried. We want to tell the story of those men who gave their lives and the sacrifice they made, we also want to tell the story of the women folk and families left behind in a short play on Saturday 10th November at 5pm entitled ‘The last Sentry duty 1918’. During Saturday 10th November the church will open to the community to come and see our exhibits and especially our WW1 trench in the foyer, also there will two important prayer stations one for all those caught up in wars around the world and one for eternal peace around the world, free from war and conflict.
On Sunday 11th November at 11am we will be holding a service of memorial.
