ALL SOULS – Date for the Diary

This year our All Souls Service is on Sunday 4th November at 4.00pm in St John the Baptist’s Church, Pilton.

If you would like some time to remember someone close to you who has died, do please come along and join us. Everyone is welcome to attend whether your bereavement is recent or longer ago. There will be an opportunity to light a candle in memory of those who have died.

If you know anyone who might find this service helpful, please let them know; you will all be most welcome.
