As part of the week of Christian Unity, all the churches in Lymington and Pennington met at in the morning of Sunday 26th January in St Thomas Church, Lymington – for a Christians Together service.
Towards the end of January we invited the community to Pennington Church for an event of songs, reflections and poems to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Including the Straight Bananas acapella group, a specially commissioned piece by our director of music, Leigh Jerwood and local students performing readings and prayer – as we Stand Together as a community.
The #75MemorialFlames project by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust has enabled groups like ours, from around the UK, to learn from the past and commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It’s so important to stand together against hatred and division.
