Remembrance Sunday Services

This year within The 3 Churches Benefice we will be having two outdoor Remembrance Sunday Services. Please do come along and join us on Sunday 13th November as we remember all those armed forces members who have died in the line of duty.

10.30am at Great Amwell War Memorial, Amwell Lane, Great Amwell
10.30am at The War Memorial, St Andrew’s Church, Stanstead Abbots

Services will be approximately 45mins and will replace normal Sunday Services this week. Please make sure you wrap up warmly for these outdoor services.

I was delighted to have a chat with workers from Suffolk Brick & Stone Cleaning Company Limited who were doing such a fantastic job of cleaning the war memorial at Great Amwell.

Great Amwell Parish Council arranged for the war memorial to be cleaned and it is looking brilliant. Thank you to the council and the workers for doing such a great job.

In memory of Katrina Dukes

Katrina Dukes 22nd May 1965 – 26th June 2021

Katrina worked for 13 years as Benefice Administrator for the 3 Churches, keeping the vicar on track, dealing with mounds of administration and caring for the people in the Benefice. She was the editorial and print team for the Village magazine and involved in moving us forward towards this new format and partnership.

Katrina was a caring communicator. She was an expert, not just on how to put the magazine together, but on how to find and help advertisers, chase writers, liaise with printers and deal with deliveries.

Gentle, kind, and loving, Katrina had a strong faith in Jesus which was the foundation of her life. She was a much loved member of her own church community in Hertford Heath, working with children and families at Trinity Tots and Trinity Kids for the last 20 years.

Katrina was a bright flame, a beautiful wife and mother, a loyal friend, a staunch ally and a woman of integrity and faith. We are grateful for her time with us and miss her deeply.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory!
