The Annual Service of Thanksgiving and Prayer for all departed loved ones.


Dear Friends,


The Annual Service of Thanksgiving and Prayer for all departed loved ones.

The 2020 Requiem for All Souls

7.30 pm Monday 2nd November 2020


We warmly invite you to join online at this annual service when we remember with thankfulness, love and prayer all our loved ones - family members and friends - whose lives have blessed us and who have died and gone before us into the light of God’s nearer presence.


You will understand that this year the invitation is to join with us online at Zoom and that, due to Coronavirus, we are not able to invite you to attend personally at St John’s church.


If you need any help getting online then please don’t hesitate to contact the tech. team who will be happy to help: 01189333136.


Everybody is welcome to join online. We send special invitations to those from our Parishes who have been bereaved during the last twelve months or so. And if you would like your departed loved ones to be remembered with thanksgiving and prayer, and their names to be read at the altar, please e mail or telephone the office or fill in the names and return the slip to the office.


If, at any time, you would like to talk to one of the clergy then please do not hesitate to telephone.


I do very much hope that you will be able to join online for this for this very special service of prayer and  thanksgiving


God Bless,

 Vicar: Fr Paul Chaplin
