Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance

 

NHS Grampian Chaplaincy Team have decided this year to have an in- person Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance. The service isn’t specifically to remember people who have died from COVID-19 - though it may include them - but it is to remember all our loved ones who have died, of any cause, in any of the Grampian hospitals or units in this past year at Foresterhill, Dr Gray’s, Roxburghe House, Woodend Hospital, Royal Cornhill Hospital or any of the Community Hospitals.

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 Service was recorded and made available through Social Media. This year, it will return to the usual venue at Queens Cross Church, Aberdeen on the second Sunday in September - Sunday 12th September 2021 - at 3.00pm.

 

They are restricting the numbers in the Church to 70 and if you wish to attend, they would ask you to book your place by e-mailing: gram.chaplaincy@nhs.scot by noon on Friday 10th September 2021.

 

Please give them your name, number in your party (maximum of 4) and your contact telephone number. If you have a booked a place and find nearer the time of the Service that you cannot attend, please email gram.chaplaincy@nhs.scot

 

Do not come to the Service if you develop any symptoms associated with COVID-19. You will be required to wear a face mask during the Service.

 

Although the Service will be in-person, it will also be live streamed for those who are not able to attend. The link to the Queens Cross You Tube Channel is :

The centrepiece of the Service will be the lighting of 12 candles for each month of the year and remembering all those who died during that particular month. If you watch the live stream from home, you may wish to light your own candle at home at the appropriate month.
