**** General News & Future Dates ****

Remembrance 100

On Sunday, 4th August 1918, the fourth anniversary of the declaration of war, King George V and Queen Mary joined members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords for a special service at the Church of Saint Margaret, Westminster.  The King had asked that 4th August 1918 should be observed as a National Day of Prayer: 100 days later the war ended.

100 years’ later, on 4th August 2018, churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, start 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation. Every day there are prayers and actions for peace. You can sign up to take part and spend just a few minutes of your day, adding your prayers to those of tens of thousands more. There will be more information as it becomes available, or follow this link: www.remembrance100.co.uk
