Our church was open on Friday 27th January (Holocaust Memorial Day) for quiet reflection, silence and prayers from 10:00am — 12 Noon and from 6:00pm — 8:00pm.

This year, this national event felt even more poignant, with some of the language of the current political landscape echoing sentiments and attitudes of the past.

People were invited to light a candle, to read the leaflets and display boards, and to play their part in remembering the horrors of our recent history and what has been, whilst committing themselves to working towards and standing up for a better world and future.
