There will be a 12 noon service by the Dean and Bishop of Southwark.

A Diocesan Service for VE Day will be available on Diocesan and Cathedral social media platforms at 12 noon on Friday 8th May. The Dean of Southwark will officiate and the Bishop of Southwark will preach and lead an act of Recommitment to Peace. We invite people from across the Diocese to send in wartime photographs, either of soldiers or of civilians, as we remember those who lived through World War Two. Alternatively we invite photographs of people from acrossthe Diocese holding up cards saying “Love” or “Peace” to symbolise our commitment to a peaceful future in which people care for each other. Please send photographs to [email protected] by Tuesday 5th May. These images will be used in the service which will be available online, so please consider this and the implications for safeguarding if you send in pictures of children, young people or vulnerable adults.
