Following the recent Government announcement, we will not be holding the annual Royal British Legion Service of Remembrance on Sunday 8th November, as previously advertised. Instead the service will be pre-recorded - for viewing at 2.30pm on our Facebook page and this website on 8th November.

In the meantime, and until otherwise advised, you are welcome to visit the church for private prayer and to view our moving Poppy Remembrance Tribute, which honours the men of Aylsham who lost their lives during World War II.

This installation is a reimagining of Aylsham Church's hugely popular 2018 Poppy Cascade created from 2,500 knitted and handmade poppies by various local community groups.

Alongside our Poppy Remembrance Tribute, the Lady Chapel features a display of the moving #ThereButNotThere Soldier Silhouettes. Originally funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund, these figures are a reminder of those local men who gave their lives and served their country in World War I.

A profound way to remember those in our community who gave the ultimate sacrifice - especially at this difficult time.

We will remember them.


Regrettably, we will not be able to gather at the War Memorial at 11:00am on Wednesday 11th November. Please take two minutes to personally remember, at home, the sacrifice of others on that day.
