Cannington United Reformed Church

Morning worship at 9.30am every Sunday

Remembrance Sunday

You are warmly welcomed to our service at 9.30am on Sunday 11th November. We will gather at the War Memorial at 10.50am to remember the lost from the village and for the laying of remembrance wreaths.

In association with St Mary’s Church, every home in Cannington has received a copy of the booklet “Silence … We will remember them”.

It looks back with gratitude for the sacrifice made by so many in war. It reflects on eternal themes of faith, hope and love. We hope it will be a blessing to you as this year, and every year, we will remember them.

St Mary’s Church Remembrance Service is also at 9.30am. Joining with all villagers who wish to pay their respects and give thanks at the War Memorial at 10.50am.

Lunch Club

Experience the legendary Cannington URC hospitality with a home-cooked, two-course lunch. This weekly event is a real blessing to the 40-50 people who dine here.
