The service will include:

  • Procession with Alan Lawrie on Bagpipes
  • 'The Last Post' with Paul Taylor on Trumpet
  • Roll of Honour
  • Traditional Remembrance Day hymns
  • The St. James Choir performing a new work by Howard Jones: “The Peacemakers”

The lyrics of 'The Peacemakers' are based on a poem by Waldo Williams reflecting on World War II. In February 1941 the port of Swansea in South Wales was heavily bombed by the German air force. The poem expresses his struggle to hold on to his Christian beliefs of love and forgiveness in the face of the violence and destruction he sees.
