Service of Remembrance at Norwich Cathedral

On Thursday 21st September at 7.30pm The Matthew Project is holding their 10th Service of Remembrance organised in conjunction with Norwich Cathedral. This service offers a chance for family, friends and organisations to honour and remember those who have died as a result of alcohol and drug use.

Anyone is welcome to join, including those who are battling with drug and alcohol use themselves, or who are supporting someone else with addiction. Wherever you are on this journey you would be welcome to join us.

During the service there will be an opportunity for people to choose a pebble and place it in front of the altar in memory of the person they have known and cared for. A Book of Remembrance will also be available in which names of loved ones and messages may be recorded.

There will be tea and coffee afterwards for those who wish to stay, and The Matthew Project's staff will be there to talk to if this would be helpful.

For any advice on drug or alcohol addiction, or for further information about the Service of Remembrance, please contact The Matthew Project on 01603 626 123, or send an email to
