WWI Service at St Gregory’s

Among the services commemorating the start of WW1, there will be a service at St Gregory’s Church on Sunday 3rd August at 3.00pm.


In the Parish Magazine, Revd Gregory Webb writes:

This year, as I am sure we are all aware, marks the 100th Anniversary of the First World War. There have already been numerous TV programmes, books and newspaper articles about it.

On Sunday 3rd August at 3.00pm there will be a service at St Gregory’s to mark the actual beginning of that war. The Royal British Legion are fully involved with this and there will be many services across the country at this time. It will not of course be a “Celebration” but will reflect the tragedy and sadness of the war itself, as evidenced by the names on the War Memorial outside the church. Those names will be read out and remembered during the service.

The service will of course be open to the public so you will be very welcome to attend.
