The King's Church, Wisbech meets in the Queen Mary Centre every Sunday.
This week as part of their gathering on Sunday morning, they took time to pause and remember those who had fallen in defence of our country.
Since 1919, 11 o'clock on the 11th November has been a special date in Britain. Marking the ceasefire of World War One, the nation has collectively made 11th November (and the Sunday closest to it) a time that is set aside to remember those lost to war and volience as well as to pray for peace.
The Royal British Legion explains "Remembrance Sunday is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life. We remember the Armed Forces, and their families, from Britain and the Commonwealth, the vital role played by the emergency services and those who have lost their lives as a result of conflict or terrorism."
They also prayed for peace amidst all the conflicts and wars that are raging at this time. That Jesus, the Prince of Peace will come and show everyone how to live well together.
