We grieve with hope, because we believe that Jesus died and rose again.
St Peter & St Paul’s hosted the Team’s annual Bereavement and Memorial service in association with the parish of St John the Evangelist - Grays North. With around 150 in attendance this special service gave everyone a chance to reflect upon, and give thanks for, the lives of those who passed away in the parishes over the last 12 months. Revd Canon Darren Barlow presided over the service, Cheryl Ramballi read for us and Cathy Hasler preached, touching upon her own situation as well as reflecting on that of others. Revd Christine Williams and Revd Tony Burford led the act of remembrance and Revd Clive Russell (vicar at St John the Evangelist) led everyone in prayer.
