Information re marking WW1
The 6 Presidents of Churches Together in England agreed a statement: 'From 4th August 2018 in churches across the country, let us mark 100 days with prayers for peace, hope and reconciliation'.
As we approach the 11th November 2018 and the 100th year since the end of World War I, there are many groups and resources for prayer, remembrance, outreach and service that groups of churches can offer to their local communities.
