You may have noticed that we’ve got many memorial stones on the walls around our church. These stones are there as a reminder to us of those who have died in military service.

One which is particularly relevant and interesting as we approach the centenary of Anzac, is this one (picture below).

While we all recognise the importance of Anzac Day, I think many of us don’t realise just how closely we’re tied with some of those who have served our nation. Here’s a guy who was a part of our church over a hundred years ago. He’d gone off to fight in the war, but never returned. His stone is just one of many stones which exist as a reminder of the sacrifice many have made so that we might live.

Join us as we remember the sacrifice of those who have died in service to our country.
