Prayer resources to mark First World War centenary
The Church of England has launched new worship and prayer resources to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. A variety of ideas for worship, prayer, and remembrance are available to help communities to remember those who were lost, and to pray for peace.
These resources include a prayer for families to say while visiting a war grave or memorial, an Act of Commitment to work together for peace, a Vigil Service to mark the centenary, and a monologue interspersed with suggested words and music, entitled Steps towards Reconciliation. There are also resources for schools.
