Remembrance at the Memorial Buildings

October 26 2018

Horfield Baptist Church will be commemorating this month's centenary of the ending of World War One at its own Memorial Buildings.

The church's Memorial Buildings are next to the main church building facing Gloucester Road and incorporate the church's Fresh Ground Café. They were built in memory of those who served and the 39 men from the church who were killed in the First World War. The names of the fallen are recorded on a stone at the front of the buildings which were opened on 1922.

 The church is putting up a remembrance silhouette inside its Fresh Ground Café and adding 39 poppies to represent the church members who died. Further information and stories about some of those church members will also be added. 

 From November 5 everyone in the Bishopston area is invited to visit during café opening hours and purchase a British Legion poppy. This poppy can then be added to the silhouette in memory of someone lost in war from their own family, along with a name and other details if they wish.

 On Sunday 11 November Horfield Baptist's Remembrance Service will start at 10.30am outside the Memorial Buildings and continue inside the church after the two minute silence at 11am. All are very welcome to attend the service or observe the silence for this centenary Remembrance.
