On 4 August 1918 King George V called for 100 National Days of Prayer. One hundred days later the war ended.
Remembrance 100 launched on 4 August 2018 with 100 Days of Peace and Hope – prayers, Bible readings, reflections and peace-making activities.
Remembrance 100 is a collaboration between Christian denominations, ministries and chaplaincies to help churches mark the centenary of the First World War at the heart of their communities.
There is a candle lit in St John’s in front of an appropriate picture for these 100 days.
