Bermondsey remembers

Our Remembrance Day events in Bermondsey began  with an Act of Remembrance in brilliant sunshine at the war memorial in Old Jamaica Rd (left), with the Army Cadets, the Veterans, councillors from both political parties, former MP, Sir Simon Hughes, and members of the public.

Meanwhile, back in St James's we were getting ready for our main Remembrance Sunday service, at which, Delorine (left), our placement student from St Augustine's College was the guest preacher.

After the service we all moved to the Narthex where Pat laid a wreath at the Boer War Memorial and David laid a wreath at the memorial to the ten young men of the St James Bermondsey Bible Class who gave their lives in the First World War.

It is good to take this annual moment to pause, to remember, to give thanks, and to pray for peace in our troubled world.
