Churches get creative with Remembrance 100 campaign
The Hope Together initiative of 100 Days of Peace and Hope leading up to Remembrance Sunday is gathering pace.
More than 1,000 people receive the thoughts and prayers each day, thousands more are following them on social media, and www.remembrance100.co.uk has been visited more than 44,500 times.
Moor Lane Methodist Church in Crosby is marking the 100 days by creating a display of 100 ceramic poppies in front of the church. The poppies have been crafted and painted by members of the congregation, each poppy representing one of the 100 days of prayer.
Every day Hitchin Churches Together add a hand-made dove of peace to the growing flock hanging in the grounds of Hitchin’s Friends (Quakers) Meeting House. And St John's, St Mary's, Emmanuel, St Ann's and St Aldhelm's Churches in Weymouth, Dorset, are planning a Remembrance exhibition using images from the giftbook Silence.
