An opportunity for the City to remember
Each year, St Helen's holds a Remembrance Service offering City workers an opportunity to remember those who have given their lives defending the freedom of others. The Service usually includes hymns, readings, participation from current and former members of the armed forces, and an address from a Christian who has served in the armed forces.
