Each year the Street Benefice tries to host an All Souls Service at one of its churches to remember those we have loved and lost in the preceding 12 months – and those we remember and miss from many years ago. Last year, for obvious reasons, this service did not happen but this year it will go ahead at Barton le Street, from 6.30pm on Sunday 24th October.
The service will use the Taize model of worship as an inspiration – a very peaceful and restful way of singing and praying in a church filled with candles. You can sit in silence or join in as you please, but worship will be led by the Benefice Music Group and should be very restful and reflective. Part of the service will be a reading out of names from each village. If you would like us to add any names of recently-lost or much-missed loved ones to the list, please just add them to the sheet at the back of All Saints’ church (open every day from 7am).
If you would like to attend the service you will be warmly welcomed. You don’t need to be a member of church or even consider yourself religious – just come and be – with us. And as the evenings tend to draw in now, if you would like a lift or more information or to have names added to the list from afar, do contact Kate Giles at [email protected]
