SERVICES of remembrance will be held on the next two Sundays for people who lost loved ones during lockdown.
Rugby Baptist Church will hold two services of Remembrance and Thanksgiving for anyone who was bereaved during lockdown and was not able to mourn or honour their loved one in the way they would have wished.
David Fleming, Minister of Rugby Baptist Church, said the services would hopefully help people to remember and draw comfort in a way that they could not at the time.
He added: “We will be serving refreshments for a short time after the service but would hope that you might be able to take the opportunity to have the wake that you missed during lockdown.
“The experience of walking away from the crematorium afterwards and not being able to meet with others was really difficult. Wakes are a great place to reminisce, remember the happy times and the fun things that have happened over the years.
“It’s never too late to remember. This service may be just the opening for you to say a proper farewell. Please join us and say farewell but not forgotten.”
The services will take place on Sunday September 5 and 12 at 4pm. Booking is required. Email email@example.com or call 01788 570410 for more details and to book a place.
