Commemoration of the Faithful Departed
A Service of Prayers and Readings – All Souls Day, 2022
On 6th November we held our annual Benefice Service of Commemoration.
We gathered in Welshampton Church to remember relatives and friends who have sadly passed away. In the darkness of a cold and wet November night, we comforted one another with hymns and prayers; as we lit candles of remembrance, the names of our loved ones were read out. Naturally there was sadness, but the warmth shown to everyone was a great comfort to all those who attended. The service was poignantly and sympathetically led by Rev. Anne.
hear our prayers and comfort us;
renew our trust in your Son,
whom you raised from the dead.
Strengthen our faith
that all who have died in the love of Christ
will share in his resurrection;
who lives and reigns with you,
now and for ever.
