Worship for Remembrance Sunday 8/11/2020

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” Mark 8:34

Introductory music

Taken from the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance 2018, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason plays Hallelujah, with tributes to the fallen from 1914-1918.


Welcome to our time of worship. Thank you for joining us.
Rev Graham Taylor, our Interim Moderator, introduces time of Remembrance.


Our first hymn is “O God, our help in ages past”, performed by performed by the City of London Sinfonia Brass and The Cambridge Singers.

Prayer & Bible Reading

Mark chapter 8, verses 31-38.


As you reflect on these words, listen to ‘In Flanders Fields’ from The Salvation Army’s FourHymn.



Our next hymn is ‘Christ triumphant, ever reigning’.



Our final hymn is “Love Divine” recorded for BBC Songs of Praise in St David’s Cathedral.

The National Anthem

As is tradition on Remembrance Sunday, we sing the UK National Anthem, God save the Queen.


We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.

Final music

Elgar’s Nimrod recorded recently by the violas from the various BBC Orchestras.


We are continuing to alternate between online and in church services. Next week (15th November), we will meet together in church. John Dent will lead our service in church, and Jim McDonald will deliver a reflection on the topic of Bible Sunday.

With thanks to Rev Graham Taylor, and Bill and Catherine Mclean.
