An invitation is being extended by Churches Together in All Lincolnshire (CTAL) for people across Lincolnshire to remember the human impact of Covid-19 and to look to the future with a sense of hope.

An online church service: Lincoln Remembers - Covid, Grief and Hope, recognises the human toll the virus has taken in so many ways and will be online on Sunday September 20th at 7pm. The invitation is for anyone to attend regardless of belief and for people to light a candle in a window on the Sunday evening as a communal way of marking the gathering.

In Lincolnshire there has been loss of life, employment and opportunities and little time to stop and ponder what has occurred, even when isolating. Many are grieving the loss of loved ones. Local church leaders believe that how we remember and shape memories is so important for individuals and the community and hope the online service may assist with this. During the service there will be people available to talk with anyone through the online platform.

While there is loss to remember the service will also look to the future, seeing hope in the journey ahead for the county and for every town and nation. The service will recognise those whose support through the pandemic has been a source of inspiration and hope. There will be participation from emergency workers and others who have worked throughout the pandemic to help others.

The service can be accessed through this link:
