The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

All Souls Choral Requiem – Thursday 2nd November 2023, 7pm

A beautiful service to support all those who are bereaved and to remember those we love and see no longer.

The setting will be Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem Op.48, sung by the girls and adults.

In this Feast of All Souls service, we remember with thanksgiving the people we love who have died. The commemoration of the departed on All Souls’ Day celebrates the saints in a more intimate way than All Saints’ Day. It allows us to remember with thanksgiving before God those whom we have known directly – those who gave us life, or who supported and encouraged us on life’s journey or who nurtured us in faith.

During this service, everyone is invited to bring the names of loved ones departed, and to light a prayer candle as our individual commendation to God of those whom we remember but see no more.

If you wish to send names of loved ones to be read out during the service, either email the Parish Office: or post them to the Parish Office: Lisa Babb, Parish Office, St Peter’s Church, Hinton Road, Bournemouth, BH1 2EE.

During the service there will be collection in aid of Macmillan Caring Locally, a BCP-based charity that has personal links with St Peter’s Church.

We very much look forward to welcoming everyone to the service.
