Order of Service for Remembrance Sunday

Order of Service for Remembrance Sunday 

The Gathering All gather in silence. The presiding minister reads one or more of the following sentences

God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46.1

 

I lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence will my help come?

My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.                  

                                                                     Psalm 121.1,2

 

Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,

they shall mount up with wings like eagles,

they shall run and not be weary

they shall walk and not faint.                             Isaiah 40.31

 

What does the Lord require of you but to do justice,

and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with your God                        Micah 6.8

 

The presiding minister continues

We meet in the presence of God.

We commit ourselves to work

in penitence and faith

for reconciliation between the nations,

that all people may, together,

live in freedom, justice and peace.

We pray for all

who in bereavement, disability and pain

continue to suffer the consequences of fighting and terror.

We remember with thanksgiving and sorrow

those whose lives,

in world wars and conflicts past and present,

have been given and taken away.

Remembering 

An older person says

They shall grow not old,

as we that are left grow old;

age shall not weary them,

nor the years condemn.

 

A younger person may reply

At the going down of the sun

and in the morning,

we will remember them.

 

All affirm All   We will remember them.

The beginning of the two-minute silence may be signalled.

Silence is kept.

The completion of the silence may be signalled.

 

The Laying of Wreaths

 

The following prayer is said

Ever-living God, we remember those whom you have gathered from the storm of war

into the peace of your presence;

may that same peace calm our fears, bring justice to all peoples

and establish harmony among the nations,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All   Amen.
