Theft of Lead from Field House

It is with disappointment that we report the Theft of Lead from the Roof of Field House in Credenhill. Formerly the School when the village was much smaller and now home to the Kindergarten who operate a nursery with very limited funds.

The theft occurred some time in the last week and as you can see from the photos a significant amount of Lead has been stolen.

The police have been informed and local scrap dealers will be made aware of the very distinctive pattern.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY SERVICE

8th November 2020

at 10.45am

at

Credenhill War Memorial

We gather in silence

The priest says: God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble.                   (Psalm 46:1)

“This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.”  (Lamentations 3:21-23)

We are here to worship God, whose purposes are good; whose power sustains the world he has made; who loves us, though we have failed in his service; who gave Jesus Christ for the life of the world; who by his Holy Spirit leads us in his way. As we give thanks for his great works, we remember those who have lived and died in his service and in the service of others; we pray for all who suffer through war and are in need; we ask for his help and blessing that we may do his will, and that the whole world may acknowledge him, as Lord and King.  At this time we remember Ypres, Gallipoli, the Somme, Mons and Verdun.  We remember the Western Desert, El Alamein, the Normandy beaches. We remember Coventry, Dresden, Hiroshima and the Burma Road. We remember Korea, Malaya, the Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland, the Balkans, East Timor, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Gulf.

We remember the courage, the comradeship, the ingenuity, the spirit of working together for a common cause, the planning together, for a better world that would come with peace. We remember the carnage; the colossal horror of war.  We remember the widows and people who never knew their fathers.  We remember the love that was lost, the wisdom wasted, the minds that are still pained by memories. 

We remember the families bereft by recent wars and conflict.                         We remember this day the children who will die while nation fights nation. Father, remember us;  and forgive our sins against you and our fellow human beings.  Amen.

HYMN

O God our help in ages past, our hope for years to come,                                              
our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home.

Under the shadow of thy throne, thy saints have dwelt secure;                             
sufficient is thine arm alone, and our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood, or earth received her frame,                                        
from everlasting thou art God, to endless years the same.

A thousand ages in thy sight are like an evening gone;                                                   
short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun.

Time like an ever rolling stream, will bear us all away;                                                      
we fade and vanish, as a dream dies at the op’ning day.

O God our help in ages past, our hope for years to come,                                                  
be thou our guard while troubles last, and our eternal home.

ACT OF REMEMBRANCE

A list is read of those remembered from 1914-1918 war and 1939-1945.

An older person says Binyon’s lines:

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old:                                                        
age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  

A younger person continues:

 At the going down of the sun and in the morning,                                          
we will remember them.

  And all shall repeat: We will remember them.

The Last Post is sounded followed by

TWO MINUTES SILENCE.

Then the Reveille is sounded signifying that resurrection always follows death.

The Kohima Epitaph is said

When you go home, tell them of us and say                                                    
‘For your tomorrow – we gave our today’.

The following prayer is said

Ever-living God, we remember those whom you have gathered from the storm of war into the peace of your presence; may that same peace calm our fears, bring justice to all peoples and establish harmony among the nations, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

THE LAYING OF WREATHS

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 Thy love; and bring us all, with them, to your eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

THE BIBLE READING

Luke 12:1-7 –  Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.   There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.   What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.   But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.  Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?  Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.   Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth much more than many sparrows.

A SHORT ADDRESS

THE PRAYERS

All join together inTHE LORD’S PRAYER

And forgive us our trespasses,                                                                                   
as we forgive those who trespass against us.                                                         
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.                                   
For thine is the kingdom. the power, and the glory,                                                      
for ever and ever. Amen.

be with you all,                                                                                                             
and remain with you always. Amen.
