Rev Abrams said: “There are many ways peo­ple like to re­mem­ber loved ones.

“This is a warm in­vi­ta­tion to come along for any­one who would wish to do it in the con­text of a church ser­vice.

“We hope the time to­gether will be gen­tle, sup­port­ive and en­cour­ag­ing.

“There will be dif­fer­ent ways of re­mem­ber­ing, in­clud­ing the op­por­tu­nity to light a can­dle of re­mem­brance, place a flower of re­mem­brance and tie a rib­bon in me­mory of some­one spe­cial on the tree of re­mem­brance.”

Af­ter the ser­vice, there will be time for re­flec­tion, con­ver­sa­tion and re­fresh­ments.
