Virtual Civic Service for VE Day

The Lord Mayor of Chester, the Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Cathedral have come together to produce a Virtual Civic Service to commemorate 75 years since the end of World War II.



From Bishop Keith


As the nation marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day, Bishop Keith reflects on that victory and God's role in. He says: "Today we rejoice in the victory over that terrible tyranny; we were right to ask God for that victory and to thank God that the victory came. Today we look to the past and we thank God for that Victory in Europe; we remember those who did not come back, the many who died in these islands through the bombing of our cities, and we pray for those whose lives have been scarred forever by the brutalities of war."
