Friday 11 November
Prescot Town Council holds its Armistice Day Act of Remembrance on Friday 11 November at 10.50am by the BI Memorial in Prescot Cemetery, just a short walk through the churchyard.
Refreshments follow in the Parish Centre, and the church will be open to allow people to see the stunning display of hand-knitted poppies. Many thanks to Lesley Porter of the Friends of Prescot Cemetery and Churchyard for organising this, and for everyone in the community who contributed their time and skills to its creation.
The poppies remain in place until Saturday 12 November, when the church will be open again from 12 noon to 2pm.
Sunday 13 November
Remembrance Sunday falls on 13 November this year, and as always, Prescot Parish Church will host a Civic Act of Remembrance to remember all who have lost their lives in war and to pray for peace, justice and an end to violent conflict.
Our Eucharist will be a spoken service (no music) at 9am on Sunday 13 November, and the Civic Act of Remembrance begins at 10.50am by the War Memorial on the parish steps. Following the traditional 11am silence and the laying of wreaths, our service continues indoors.
All are welcome.
Update: If you are marching, the procession leaves Prescot Primary School on Maryville Road (L34 2TA) at 10.25am. Click here for more information about all remembrance services in Knowsley.
