Remembrance 100

On Sunday, 4 August 1918, the fourth anniversary of the declaration of war, King George V and Queen Mary joined members of the House of  Commons and the House of Lords for a special service at the Church of Saint
Margaret, Westminster. The King had asked that 4 August 1918 should be
observed as a National Day of Prayer: 100 days later the war ended.
On 4 August 2018 churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, started 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation: Remembrance 100
.
 
 Over the next few weeks St Michael’s Church, alongside The Royal British Legion, and the Alphington community, will be holding a number of different events, leading up to Remembrance Sunday on 11th November.
We are aiming to build a Remembrance display in church, filled with family remembrances, art, craft, poetry and prayer. As well as planned events, members of the community are invited to contribute to the display during Open Church sessions. Please come along and share your family memories, thoughts and prayers for peace in the world today.
