Caversham will remember their loved ones

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

Caversham churches will offer an opportunity to remember a loved one this coming month in a series of events.

The season of remembrance in Caversham begins with an invitation to the whole community to remember their loved ones at services on Sunday, November 2 to mark All Souls day.

There will be special services at 4pm in St John’s on Gosbrook Road, and at 6.30pm at St Peter’s, in The Warren, where all will be invited to quietly remember loved ones and light candles in their memory. Names of those to be remembered can be added to lists in the churches until Monday, October 27.

A week later, all are invited once again to remember the fallen in war; and especially those killed in the First World War, in this centenary year.

On November 8, a special Requiem service at St John’s, 7.30pm, will see the Requiem Indigo performed by the Hurst Singers along with St John’s choir and other local choirs and musicians.

The music has been composed by St John’s organist Len David and the collection will go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

On Sunday, November 9, St Peter’s will gather to mark Remembrance Sunday at 9.45am, concluding with an act of remembrance including two minutes silence at 11am. At St Margaret’s, Mapledurham, the act of remembrance begins at 10.45am with wreaths laid at the churchyard memorial gates.
