Annual memorial service held
Kent-based John Weir Funeral Directors held their annual memorial service in December for families the company has acted for over the year.
The familiar sound of the bagpipes playing from the church tower greeted guests as they arrived to seek comfort in the warmth of St Margaret’s Church, Rainham, on the cold afternoon. Once inside, families were welcomed with Piano Voluntaries, before a service conducted by Reverend Nathan Ward, assisted by Father Sean O’Connor and Bridget Sapiano.
The beautiful service, featuring the Harmony Choir in a candlelit church and an ever-poignant bugler, was a comfort for all in attendance.
A sum of £623 was raised for John Weir Funeral Directors’ chosen charity, Holding On Letting Go, which supports bereaved children, young people and their families in Kent and Medway.Tags: charity, Christmas, fundraising, funeral directors, Holding On Letting Go, John Weir, Kent, Rainham, service, St Margaret's Church
