Portchester Memorial Gardens Christmas Remembrance Service 2022

Christmas Service

“What a beautiful difference you’ve made in my life”

We were happy to welcome everybody back to our beautiful grounds for our fifteenth annual Christmas Remembrance Service on Sunday 4 December, 2022.

Thankfully the weather was kind, albeit a little chilly, which allowed the releasing of the doves.

We hope you found solace, peace and some healing within our gardens, amongst the other visiting families and wider community. The Christmas Service continues to remember those who have touched our lives and are no longer physically present while serving as a reminder that you are not alone. May they continue to rest in tranquil memories and reflections.

Christmas Wreath
Song in the Songless
by George Meredith

They have no song, the sedges dry,
And still they sing.
It is within my breast they sing,
As I pass by.
Within my breast they touch a string,
They wake a sigh.
There is but sound of sedges dry;
In me they sing.
