Did you know that there are 67 countries in the world where peace does not reign? Most do not make it on to the news, yet the suffering there is just as real. To highlight this, one of the bells at St Mary’s Redbourn is going to be rung 67 times just before 11am each day from today, Monday 7th November until Saturday 12th November: each chime representing one such country.
Each chime is a prayer to end all wars. We invite you all to join us either online or at the church at this time – a video of the 67 chimes will be posted on our Facebook page each day.
On Remembrance Sunday 13th November 2016, at 11am the bells will fall silent in tribute not just to our own fallen, but also to all the fallen in these countries.
We pray for:
Central African republic
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Republic of the Congo
North and South Korea
Israel / Palestine
