The finished icon by Revd James Pettit, 'Christ enthroned in Majesty'. Ready for Christ the King this Sunday 24th November. #christtheking #icon
God all powerful, who called Martin of Tours from the armies of this world to be a faithful soldier of Christ: give us grace to follow him in his love and compassion for the needy, and enable your Church to claim for all people their inheritance as children of God through Christ.
A privilege to join children from The Russell School at the Ham War Memorial today to place crosses, hear the story of local soldier Albert Thurley, and pray for peace. At 11am we stood in silence, as leaves fell around us, and said together, 'We will remember them'.
God, the saviour of all,
you sent your bishop Willibrord from this land
to proclaim the good news to many peoples
and confirm them in their faith:
help us also to witness to your steadfast love by word and deed so that your Church may increase and grow strong in holiness.
Act of Remembrance at Ham War Memorial this Sunday 10th November, gathering at 10:50am. St Andrew's Remembrance Service in the Church at 9:45am. Please join us to remember those who have suffered and died in conflict and celebrate peace.
