This year the Remembrance Sunday service is in St James’ Church on 12 November at 11.30am.
It means there are a couple of points to note in relation to services on that Sunday:
- There is no Sunday service at St Gerardine’s High Church on that date because it is a joint service with St James’ Church for Remembrance Sunday.
- There is no 10:00am service at St James’.
Before the 11.30am service, there will be a short service at Lossiemouth War Memorial, Pitgaveny St, Lossiemouth IV31 6DF. It will begin at about 10.50am.
You are most welcome to attend either or both these services.
Additional notes – including parking information
Members of the Armed Forces and other uniformed organisations will meet in St James’ Square and march, accompanied by the brass band, to the War Memorial.
Rev. McKee, Rev. Munro and another members of clergy from RAF Lossiemouth will take part in the proceedings at the War Memorial.
At the end of this, those taking part will meet at the Town Hall, regroup, then march, with the brass band, to St James’ Church (i.e. from High Street onto Prospect Terrace, where St James’ Church is located).
Parking may be “difficult” in the vicinity of the church. Please note that – with thanks to our friends and neighbours there – the gated car park at St Gerardine’s High Church (at the junction of Prospect Terrace and St Gerardine’s Road) will be open and available for parking.
The service at St James’ Church will start at 11.30am approximately.
