This Sunday, we commemorate the end of the First World War and honour those who died in both the First and Second World Wars, as well as more recent conflicts, in the defence of freedom.
The service will include contributions from members of local branches of the Royal British Legion together with pupils from Langar Church of England Primary School.
The start time of the service will be advised beforehand to ensure that the two-minute silence is observed at precisely 11am.
Although we once again have to cease hosting services in our church buildings, we will continue to publish regular recorded services on our website. This will provide us all with an opportunity to pause and reflect on God’s word and our response to it.
We hope that as many as possible will watch this video at
10.40 am on Sunday 8 November
so that we can share the experience of corporate prayer and worship whilst maintaining social distancing.
You might find it helpful to display a copy of the Weekly Notices side-by-side with the video or have a printed copy handy. The responses for the congregation will appear as subtitles in the video, but if you would like to download a copy of the Order of Service, please click here and the file will open in a new tab.
The video will remain on the website afterwards, so that you can watch it again later (or for the first time, if you missed it before!)
Click on the image below to watch the video. It will ‘go live’ 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. You might want to start the video a little early, just to check everything is working OK before pausing it () and pressing Play () again at the time in blue above. You can make the video fill the whole screen by pressing the button at the bottom right of the video window once it is playing.
Time for a Cuppa
We are replicating the tradition of ‘refreshments’ after the service with an online Zoom meeting. You will obviously have to provide your own tea/coffee and cake/biscuits, but you should be able to enjoy the company of others who have shared in the service and catch up with news. For reasons of online security, we are no longer publishing Zoom links in the Weekly News or on our website. Please contact Robin Coles if you would like to receive the link by email. If you haven’t used Zoom before, click here for some guidelines on how to get started.

The next scheduled online service is Sunday 15 November at 10.30 am. Check the website beforehand for details.
