Congregations of United Reformed Churches across the three nations, along with churches from other denominations are symbolising both remembrance and peace by planting poppy seeds in church borders and gardens. Red poppies have been used since just after the First World War as a symbol of remembrance for those who have died in war, whilst white poppies have come to be a symbol in the search for peace and an end to all wars.

Church Walk - Rowlands Castle to Stanstead House "we will remember them"

Easter Sunday Breakfast Celebrations...he is risen

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly and tell his disciples
that he is risen from the dead. (Matthew 28 v 6-7)

The little flower arrangements in the centre of each table at the Church Family Breakfast proclaimed the message of Easter Sunday, "He is risen".
