Many churches will observe Remembrance Sunday next week. Some may devote the whole of the service to this theme, others will use part of their time together to have an Act of Remembrance. There are two resources which may help you.
An Order of Service here is based on the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland order but shortened for use when Remembrance is but one part of the service. It could be used at the start of worship (assuming an 11pm start) at the end (assuming a 10am start) or in the middle. Of course it could be used at other times of day too.
I have also created this Act of Remembrance as a video file that can be played on a church’s AV system. It uses images to accompany the silence and the prayer and finishes with Fred Kaan’s For the Healing of the Nations. It can be downloaded here from the Remembrance folder. If using this video to coincide with the 11am silence it should be started at 10.58.
I hope these resources are useful.
With every good wish
The Rev’d Andy Braunston Minister for Digital Worship
