Messy Remembrance

Published 25th March 2014 by Messy Church

On the Sunday nearest to 11 November, most churches hold a Service of Remembrance, marking the day when World War I ended; and this year (2018) is the 100th anniversary of the end of that war. Nowadays, we also remember all those who have lost their lives fighting in subsequent wars, and a two-minute silence is kept at 11.00 am.

The material can be used at any time of the year, though probably not as an alternative to a traditional Remembrance Service proper with its usual formalities and silence. This resource is set out as a typical Messy Church menu of ideas for activities and an outline for the celebration.
