Remembrance 2020

This year we have needed to mark Remembrance Sunday in a different way to usual. On this page you will find lots of useful information and resources to help you and your church do this safely.

Church of England Guidance for Marking Remembrance Sunday

To read the latest guidance from the CofE please visit this CofE webpage and go to FAQs under Prayer and Worship/Can we still hold a remembrance service this Sunday?

Resources to help churches creatively mark Remembrance

For some really helpful suggestions of creative ways to mark Remembrance this year have a look at the CofE church support hub website.

We have created a special 10 minute Remembrance sermon video for you to download and use in online services. The sermon is delivered by Jackie Taylor, Dean of Women in Ministry and a Royal British Legion Chaplain. It follows the Bible readings for Sunday 8 November. You can download it here and view it below:
