Events

Remembrance 2018

In this centenary anniversary year of the end of the First World War, we are hosting a number of special events and services to mark this commemoration. Chief among these will be our "There But Not There" installation, of twenty-nine seated transparent perspex sillhouettes, representing the Fallen of Bickley. The Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Kim Botting, and the Rt Hon. Bob Neill MP, will join the congregation at Mass on Sunday 4 November (10.30am) to witness the opening of the exhibition, which will also feature biographical details of those commemorated. The installation will then be open to visitors (free of charge) daily 4 - 18 November. We welcome schools and other groups, but ask that you book a time to visit in advance.
On Remembrance Sunday/Armistice Day itself (11 November) the Sung Mass of Requiem and Act of Remembrance will begin at 10.30am, involving the participation of the 15th Bromley Scout Group, and 228 (Bromley) Sqn RAF Air Cadets. At 6pm the choir will lead us in Choral Evensong, including Howells' Collegium Regale, and Libera Me by Fauré.

Rededication of the War Memorial

On Thursday, 22 September 2016 St George's Church in Bickley witnessed the rededication of its First World War Memorial, after cleaning and restoration made possible by a generous grant from the War Memorials Trust.
Invited guests, including the Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Ian Payne, local schoolchildren, and representatives of the Armed Forces, came together to remember those from Bickley who served and died during the Great War, and to mark the blessing of the war memorial by the Bishop of Richborough, the Rt Rev'd Norman Banks. 
The Vicar of St George's, Fr Richard Norman, remarked, 'For over 150 years St George's has stood at the heart of the community in Bickley, and has shared the joys and sorrows of the parish. As the nation commemorates the centenary of the conflict 1914-1918, we felt it appropriate to highlight the sacrifice made by the few for the many, and to bring together the community for whose life they fell in battle.' 
The photographs show the blessing of the memorial by Bishop Banks, and the placing of a wreath by Lt Col. Brendan Hogan of the Australian High Commission in London, who was among Armed Forces guests at the service.
