At the going down of the sun

And in the morning, we will remember them.

We will remember them.

The Service was attended by members of the public, local civic dignitaries, Scouts, Army Cadets, representitives of the Military, together with Trustees and members of host organisation the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust. Readings were read and hymns sung, a thoughtful address was given, and prayers of thanksgiving were said.The Last Post and Reveille were followed by the laying of wreaths. The Service ended with the Kohima Epitaph:

When you go home,

Tell them of us and say,

For your tomorrow

We gave our today.

St George's Garrison Church in Woolwich, with its modern canopy roof and stunning mosaics, is both an evocative ruin and a contemporary space. Designed by Thomas H Wyatt in an Italian-Romanesque style, the Church was built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. Today it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust who are committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy. Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, come and enjoy its beauty and peaceful garden.
