Friends and relatives of the troops praying for those they love

The parish of Reading St John remembered its young men who had joined up:

The War

 The following names should be added to the list already published of young men connected with our parish who are now in training or at the front:-

A.G. Wing, Douglas George Pugh, M P Pugh, George Murley, Stephen Neate, Albert Neate, Walter Edward Scott, Giles Ayres, Albert Higgs, Murray Slade, Fred Wheeler, George Thompson, Fred Wiggins, Wm Bushnell, W Heath, S Higgs, W Martin, B Rolfe, Wm Shepherd.

Special Intercession will be made by name for all connected with our parish after the Evening Service on the Sunday before Christmas at both Churches.

Our week-day Advent Services will still keep their special character of Intercession Services, and the special subject to be thought of and prayed for will be announced each week. It is encouraging to see more relatives and friends of our soldiers coming to these Services to pray for those they love.
