The annual Lost Fishermen’s Memorial Service at Grimsby Minster on 7th October 2018 at 2.00pm

Last year hundreds of people came together to pay their respects to the town’s lost fishermen at a poignant memorial service.

Standard bearers, the area’s local MP’s and relatives of those who perished at sea both during the war and in the town’s fishing heyday were among the congregation at the annual service held at Grimsby Minster on Sunday afternoon.

Those in attendance sang hymns and read prayers for the brave lives lost while working in often perilous conditions out at sea.

Please come and join us again this year to pay your respects and remember those we lost.

 

Recital 4th October 2018 – Chris Weaver

The monthly organ recital series continues this Thursday, 4 October at 12.30pm in what promises to be a very special concert. The recitalist is to be Christopher Weaver, who was Organist and Master of the Choristers here in the 1970s, and he is very much looking forward to “coming home”, as he describes it, and re-acquainting himself with the Minster, the organ, and anyone who remembers him from his time in the town. His programme promises to be wonderful, too, and we hope to welcome as many as possible to hear him. Free admission with a retiring collection.
