All Saints Church in Leighton Buzzard will be holding several services on Monday, August 4, as the nation marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Rev Dr Chrichton Limbert, Curate of All Saints Church, will be leading a simple memorial service at 11am at the war memorial in Church Square. This will be followed by a Requiem Mass at 11.30am in All Saints for those who were lost or whose lives were affected by the events. The day will round off with a ceremony at the war memorial at 10pm, organised by the British Legion to mark the time that the “lights went out” across Europe. All welcome.
