Further arrangements for mourning the death of Her Majesty The Queen

Her Majesty The Queen: 21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022

Published on behalf of the Churchwardens of St Leonard’s:

Arrangements for St Leonard’s for the week until the 20th September

18th September
The 09.15 service of Morning Prayer in St Leonard’s on Sunday 18th September has been cancelled.

Instead on Sunday 18th September at 6pm in St Leonard’s we will be holding a Special Commemoration Service Marking the Death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

This will be a service of readings, prayers and hymns to remember before God our late Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth and concluding with a blessing for our Sovereign Lord King Charles and the National Anthem. The service will be lead by our new Rector Jake Eggertsen and is open to all.

19th September
We do not have any events planned for the day of the state funeral, although parishes may toll their Church bells for the hour running up to 11:00, the time of the funeral.

20th September
The Church Wardens will dispose of any floral tributes and close the Book of Condolences at the end of the day after the state funeral.

Thank you.

Gill and Debbie, Churchwardens
