Virtual memorial service
The virtual memorial service is organised in partnership with Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham Voluntary Service Council and the Birmingham Council of Faiths and aims to unite and support communities during this uncertain time. Hosted on Zoom between 7-8pm on Thursday 6th August, the memorial service is free to join and open to all, including those whose loved ones have sadly died, current residents affected by the death of friends and neighbours and staff working in care homes.
The online event will open with words from Sharon Hudson, Community Development and Partnerships Lead at Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and Steve McCabe MP. A selection of personal tributes will be shared and participants will be invited to light a candle of remembrance as they unite to remember loved ones in a minute’s silence, before joining together in multi-faith prayer and song.
