Residents in Warwick are being invited to attend a remembrance and reflection event being held at a church in the town.

With it being more than a year since the first lockdown, the community at Castle Hill Baptist Church acknowledges that many people have lost someone or something— loved ones, friends, freedom, day-to-day encounters, celebrations, travel and jobs to name a few.

In response to this need, Castle Hill Baptist Church will be opening its doors on Saturday April 17 to anyone who would like a 'Space to Remember'.

The Mayor of Warwick, Cllr Terry Morris, is set to open this event at 11am.

All are welcome to drop-in and use the space until 2pm (following the government’s Covid guidelines).

Whilst this event is hosted by Castle Hill Baptist Church, the activities are self-led and designed for people of any faith or none—lighting a candle, adding a card to a tree of remembrance, writing a memory, or using the space to be still or offer private prayer.

Rev Kevin Johnson said: “This last year has been really difficult for many facing much loss, pain and disappointment.

"As Christians we want to share God’s love with the community and so we’ve created this space to help people acknowledge what has past, lament their loss but also find hope as they seek a new tomorrow.”

Castle Hill Baptist Church can be found at the top of Castle Hill and has a ramp for accessibility.
