Bishop of Derby in tribute to the young who wish to honour the war Dead

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Church of England’s Diocese of Derby, which includes South Derbyshire, commissioned the 10-minute footage featuring ex-servicemen, Royal British Legion officials, parish clergy and the Bishop of Derby, the Right Reverend Dr Alastair Redfern.

In the video, now available to watch on, the bishop says: “As we approach Remembrance Sunday it’s very moving and exciting to see so many young people involved in the poppy collections and making an effort to remember.

“Derbyshire is strong in its uniformed organisations for young people and it’s very hopeful for our country that they are involved in this remembrance moment.

That is a very moving video.  Last year at the remembrance service I spoke to the still serving son of of one of our parisioners who had come along.  Although not a Christian yet, he said how important it was to him and his colleagues that his friends were remembered with gratitude and how much it meant that we made this effort for them.  These things are very important.

Well done the Bishop and Diocese of Derby.
