Share This Post

Chaplains at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital are offering people who have been bereaved over the last two years, the opportunity to return to the hospital for a memorial service.

The annual service, which hasn’t been able to take place in person due to Covid restrictions until now, will be led by the hospital’s head of spiritual care, Revd Adrian Woodbridge.

Revd Woodbridge says:

“Each year our Chaplaincy Team holds memorial services to remember those who have died at our hospital. These memorial services are open to people of all religious beliefs or none. They contain a selection of readings, music, poems and quiet reflection as we gather in remembrance of those we love who have sadly died. Many people have lost loved ones over this last year and each life is precious and leaves loved ones with a sense of emptiness, this service provides an opportunity to return to the hospital and remember their lives together with other families that are experiencing the same shared journey.”

The In Memory and Never Forgotten Service of Remembrance will take place on 10 September at 2pm at the chapel on site at the hospital. If you are unable to attend in person, you can attend via zoom.
