War remembrance

The 100th anniversaries of World War One (which took place from 1914-1918) provide an opportunity to remember the immense human sacrifice made by people from across Lancashire.

Prayers for Remembrance Day

Almighty and eternal God,
from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted,
either by death or life:
hear our prayers and thanksgivings
for all whom we remember this day;
fulfil in them the purpose of your love;
and bring us all, with them, to your eternal joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Other prayers can be found on the Church of England website


Brothers in Arms

A 90 minute multi-media event, ‘Brothers in Arms’ tells the amazing story of the Chavasse twins, Noel and Christopher, highly decorated soldiers who served with great distinction in WW1. Their lives tell an inspiring story of courage, service, sacrifice and faith lived out under fire. 

The BBC's NorthWest Tonight featured the production in November 2014
