First Sunday Meeting January 2017



A Time to Remember

First Sunday Meeting, 8 January 2017

The First Sunday Meeting in January is set aside as a time for commemoration and reflection ‘so that good friends and loved ones are not forgotten.’ There will be songs, poetry and deeply personal accounts of bereavement which use the theme of the death of loved ones as a way to celebrate their lives.

We invite you to attend and to bring your memories to share.
