Marking Remembrance Sunday on Bayside Radio

November 08, 2020

This week, Bayside presents three programmes to mark Remembrance Sunday.

From 10 am join Rev Jeff Pearson and his congregation from around the globe for the Sunday Service. This week he will be asking "Are you willing to give everything for God?"

At 10.55 am Pete Williams begins a Bayside special Remembrance Day service "We Will Remember Them" with poetry, readings, reflection and two minutes silence at 11am. The service has been produced in conjunction with the Bay of Colwyn Town Council.

Given the current heightened restrictions and the need to protect the most vulnerable in our community, the annual public service which normally takes place in Queens' Gardens in Colwyn Bay will take place instead on the radio. An online service (via Zoom) will be conducted by the Reverend Christine Owen at 10.30 am.

It is hoped that this year during the pandemic, residents will take part in acts of remembrance safely from their own homes. We invite all residents to stand on their doorsteps to join together in the national two minutes silence.

Hear the Sunday Service and the special Remembrance programme on 87.7FM in the Bay of Colwyn, on DAB Digital Radio across North West Wales or on your smart speaker.

Update: The Colwyn Remembrance programme is now available on catch up. You can listen to the service here.

Also available to stream on demand is Canon Quentin Bellamy in a service of Choral Evensong taken from The Book of Common Prayer of The Church in Wales.

The choir of Guildford Cathedral sing Psalm 85, whilst the choir of Gloucester Cathedral sing the canticles set in the key of F major by Peter Aston. The anthem “Greater Love hath no man” by John Ireland is again sung by the choir of Guildford Cathedral.

Hymns are sung by the choir of the Abbey School, Tewkesbury. The Office hymn is “O for a heart to praise my God”, and the final hymn is “Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross”.

The service commences with Hubert Parry’s Elegy for the funeral of Sidney, 14th Earl of Pembroke played by David Ponsford on the organ in the Chapel of St Nicholas, Kings Lynn, Norfolk and the closing voluntary is by Maurice Duruflé, the Toccata from his Suite for Organ, (opus 5) played by Roger Sayer on the organ of Rochester Cathedral.
