Dear Friends and Parishioners,
As you will know, this Friday is the 75th anniversary of VE Day and this weekend we were due to have a commemorative service open to our Benefice in Offley Church. Sadly, but understandably, that is not happening.
However, I will be livestreaming on the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Offley Facebook page an adapted version of the Church of England VE Day Service—the liturgy we would have used if we were still living in “normal” times.
The prayers will begin at 11:15am, just after the national two minute silence at 11am. The text of the service is attached and also available for download from our website www.kingswaldenoffleylilley.com on the tab marked “Service Texts”.
The short service will then be posted to our Youtube page (King’s Walden, Offley, Lilley Benefice) for viewing by anyone unable to watch live on Facebook.
Do please share this information so that as many people as possible in our villages may tune in to some local prayers, if they wish to, in addition to their viewing of national events on Friday. I will also post information on the various village Facebook pages too.
I hope you are all keeping well and safe.
With all good wishes,
