During conflicts both past and current, the Bible’s life words has brought hope to millions of Service men and women. Lifewords distributed 43 million Active Service John’s Gospels during WW1, designed to fit into the pocket of a soldier or sailor’s tunic. Many drew solace and even found faith, turning to God in times of desperation. These same life words continue to bring comfort today as chaplains use them to minister to currently serving Service men and women, and to veterans.
Encourage your community to gather together in commemoration of those who have died in past and current conflicts, and give away copies of WW1 Active Service St John's Gospels and prayer cards. There are also short films that can be streamed, including a reflection to play during the 2 minute silence.
When we first received a copy of WW1 Active Service St John’s Gospel it provided us with peace and assurance, and rekindled memories of those in the war who would have turned to this booklet for strength and comfort in their hour of need.

Stream Remembrance reflection
This film contrasts the busyness of contemporary daily life with the daily act of remembrance at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium, and the chimes of Big Ben leading into two minutes of silent reflection.
