 REMEMBERING

You will see in church on Remembrance Sunday two figures which will, we hope, remind us in a special way, of the huge sacrifices made on our behalf.  They are part of the “There But Not There” project of the Remembrance Charity and, in the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury “I do commend this creative and imaginative project very warmly.  I hope that many churches will want to engage with this.  As we commemorate the end of the First World War it is vital that we remember and this project allows us to do so in a way that will engage with the imagination and be a real exercise in remembrance”.
