Remembrance Sunday

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

Remembrance Sunday is an important part of the St J's Group Ministry. Every year we hold an Act of Remembrance in all our services to remember those who have given their lives in conflict.
