Remembrance 2018

THERE BUT NOT THERE 

Here at St Luke’s we join with churches and other organisations across Great Britain and her Islands, proudly supporting There But Not There, commemorating the Fallen of the First World War. In this, the 100th anniversary year of the war’s ending and the return of peace to a ravaged and broken planet we remember the Fallen and those who stand to defend us still.

We are asking people to donate £50 so that St Luke’s can purchase some of the beautiful artworks that make up this amazing project. These silhouettes, designed to sit in a church pew, are each a memorial to a man that left St Luke’s to fight in the Great War and never returned. Smaller (and much larger) ‘Tommies’ are also available at other prices.

Please see Father Nick, Anne, Gregory or Paddy for more information.
