Journey of the Unknown Warrior 100th Anniversary

Royal British Legion PoppyOf more than one million British and Commonwealth servicemen and women killed in the First World War, some 165,000 would never receive a proper burial. In 1920, one unidentified fallen serviceman was chosen at random and returned from the fields of France to represent all those who had died in the war. On 11th November 1920, this unknown warrior was given a full state burial, being laid to rest amongst the kings and queens in Westminster Abbey. 

To commemorate this centenary, the Military Wives Choirs has re-recorded Abide with Me, a hymn sung at the funeral. The song will be released through digital music channels on 6th November accompanied by a music video and documentary telling the story of the Unknown Warrior and capturing their final journey through Whitehall to Westminster Abbey. Funds raised from sales of the recording will go to the City of Westminster Charitable Trust and the Military Wives Choir.

The project, which was produced during a period of present-world uncertainty, was conducted by Hilary Davan Wetton, one of Britain’s most distinguished and dynamic conductors, and produced by Sean Hargreaves. 70 members of the Choirs travelled from across the UK to record each vocal part individually due to COVID-19 restrictions.

CE(AMENDED) ELECTORAL REGISTER – Sections 14(1), (2) and (3)

Notice is hereby given that in view of the anticipated vacancy in this congregation of England: London, Crown Court the Kirk Session is about to make up an Electoral Register.  This Electoral Register is a list of those who will be eligible to vote when the time comes to elect a Nominating Committee, and subsequently in the election of a new minister.

If your name and current address are already on the Communion Roll, then you will automatically be placed upon the Electoral Register. You will need to take no further action.

If you are a regular worshipper here, but still a member of another congregation, and you wish to participate in the election of a minister to this congregation of England: London, Crown Court, then you should arrange to hand in to the Session Clerk a valid Certificate of Transference before the Kirk Session meets.

If you are a regular worshipper here, and not a member of this or any other congregation, then the Kirk Session can add your name to the Electoral Register as an “adherent”. If you wish the Kirk Session to consider this, you should obtain a form from the Session Clerk, complete it and return it to her before the Kirk Session meets.

The Kirk Session will meet online by Zoom on Thursday 19th day of November 2020 at 6:45 pm to make up the Electoral Register.

Following that meeting the Electoral Register of this congregation of England: London, Crown Court will have been prepared.

If you believe that your name should be on the Register, you can ask for confirmation that it has been included by contacting the Session Clerk via the Church Office of Crown Court Church of Scotland.

If, when seeking confirmation, you find that your name is not on the proposed Electoral Register, and you believe it should be, you should inform the Session Clerk in writing before the Kirk Session Meets pro re nata to finalise the register on Thursday 3rd December 2020 virtually by Zoom at 6:45 pm. You are also welcome to attend that meeting online, or speak to the Session Clerk or Interim Moderator by phone, if you wish to make the case for your name being included.
