On ANZAC Day (25 April) at 11am St Paul’s Cathedral will conduct a Service of Lament, Repentance and Hope. We will remember that the ‘War to end all wars’ was over, but that was not ‘enough’. War continues. We will pray for all peace makers, who are children of God, whoever they are. All are welcome. Service commences at 11 AM.
We will remember the ‘war to end all wars’, the 1919 Peace Conference that set the scene for more wars, and all the preparations for war, that continue even now. This is a service of lamentation and repentance for all the destruction, tragedy, loss and waste humankind brings on itself by going to war and it is a service of hope against hope for a just and sustainable peace. We will pray that by God’s grace peace makers will carry the day.
When: Thursday 25 April 2019 11am
