On August 4th, 1914 Britain declared war on Germany and thus began our nation’s involvement in the First World War. As part of the commemoration of 100 years since this event, St Stephen’s congregation, most of whom have connections with the families who lost loved ones, held a commemorative service at the War Memorial and later a Vigil between 9pm and 11pm – the time at which war was declared.
As part of the commemoration and remembrance a souvenir of the vigil has been produced and is being sold to raise funds for St Stephen’s Church. The cost of the souvenir was £5 although this can be downloaded via the link below. If you would still like to make a donation it will be most gratefully received.
