National Day of Reflection

To mark the first Anniversary of Lockdown, the Church will be open today (Tuesday 23rd March) from 5pm to 6pm for private Prayer, with the opportunity to light a candle.

During this hour the tenor bell will be tolled for an hour remembering to recall the year that has passed since the first Lockdown began.

Thank you to Lucy Moores for this splendid photograph of St. Paul’s, taken during the evening as we shone a light in our windows as part of the 8pm ‘beacon of remembrance’. 

The National Day of Reflection, organised by the charity Marie Curie supported by the Church of England, marked one year since the UK first went into lockdown.  A time for everyone to come together to collectively reflect loss, support those who have been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.
