At 11am this morning, Big Ben rang out across the church and St Bart’s congregation observed the two minute silence for all those who have died in conflict. After the ‘last post’ had sounded, wreaths were laid by the Church PCC, the W.I., the Parish Council, Village Vision Group, Village Hall and the youth of Cafe and Messy Church. The Roll of Honour was read by Tim Hough and Dave Barrett delivered the reading, but the whole service was a fitting tribute with music, hymns and prayers led by Chris Challoner and John Headon. After the National anthem and Blessing the congregation stayed for refreshments and we thank PJ for the music and lighting effects.
Church Minshull can truly say “We shall remember them”.
