Annual Services

During the year we hold several special services, see details of them below.

All Souls Day (2nd November)

We send invitations to all those with whom we have had contact through funerals, for the previous 3 years, to the All Souls Day Service. During this service we remember their loved ones and invite them to light a candle in memory.

Remembrance Day

On the afternoon of Remembrance Sunday the church hosts the Annual Remembrance Sunday Service. This is led by the members of the clergy from the Birstall Churches and is organised in conjunction with the Royal British Legion.

At the end of the service the congregation makes its way to the War Memorial in the churchyard for the Act of Remembrance and two minutes silence.

Ascension Day

A united evening service held in either St Peter’s Church or St Saviour’s Church Brownhill, to celebrate the ascension of our Lord. The service in 2020 will be on 21st May and will be held at St Peter’s with Bishop Tony – the Bishop of Wakefield.
