Remembrance Day Service 2018

Worship - Remembrance Day
God of justice and peace, we draw near to you in worship. Open our hearts in remembrance, our minds to your word and our mouths to your praise. May we leave this place with renewed commitment to your will and way for our world. Amen

Come, let us worship God


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
We will remember them.

Worship Service at First United began at 9:30 am, allowing us time to attend the Remembrance Day Ceremony which started at 11 am.

The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 36, Remembrance Day Parade takes place on November 11. The parade leaves 10:30am from Mount Pearl Intermediate and travels down Ruth Avenue, into St. David’s Park. The ceremony begins 11:00am.


100 Bells will toll across Canada

On November 11, at the going down of the sun, communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end.
