|Artefacts from an exhibition in Falstone Village Hall|
following the service in St Peter's to dedicate a new War Memorial plaque in memory of the men from the parish who died in both World Wars and to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War of 1914 -1918.
The service was followed by a buffet lunch in Falstone Village Hall for the whole congregation (of about a hundred).[More on WW1 page]
The other services of my day were the Sung Eucharist at Bellingham (according to the Book of Common Prayer of 1662); the informal S.T.A.R.S (Sunday Toddlers And RelativeS) for the under-fives and their families; and an evening celebration of Holy Communion (according to the modern Common Worship service) back at St Peter's Falstone, quietly drawing the events of the day together.
