24 October 2016 at 13:35

The chaplain of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, Rev. Martin Abrams, is leading a memorial service on 6 November for anyone wishing to remember a loved one.

The service will be held at 10.45am on Sunday 6 November at Ainsdale Methodist Church, opposite Ainsdale Village Green. Dr Karen Groves, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, will also take part in the service.

Martin says: “There are many ways people like to remember loved ones. For those who wish to do it in the context of a church service, and are not involved in other churches, there is a warm invitation to come to Ainsdale Methodist Church.

“Anyone is welcome at the service and we hope the time together will be gentle, supportive and encouraging for all. There will be an opportunity to remember loved ones in different ways, including lighting a candle of remembrance or placing a flower of remembrance.”

Dr Groves, added: “Remembering those we have loved and lost is important to us, and it can be important to continue to celebrate and remember their lives. November is already a month of remembrance and it seems entirely appropriate that we also remember those we have cared for here at the Trust.”

Refreshments will be available after the service.
