10:45 Service of Remembrance

Troon’s annual Act of Remembrance and wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial.

This year the service will be conducted by Rev David Prentice-Hyers, minister of Troon Old Parish Church.

We remember the fallen of two World Wars and conflicts around the world since, up to the present day.

The Service of Remembrance will take place at the War Memorial irrespective of the weather – the Town Hall is not available as an alternative venue.

11:15 (approx) United Worship Service

Immediately after the Service of Remembrance at the War Memorial, there will be an ecumenical worship service for the community of Troon, hosted by Troon Old. The joint congregations of Portland Parish Church, St Meddan’s Parish Church and Troon Old Parish Church will share worship, with participation by members of Royal British Legion Scotland and the uniformed organisations.

All attending the ceremony at the War Memorial are warmly welcomed to come in out of the cold and share in this special church service, followed by tea and coffee in the Church Hall.

Members of the congregation not attending the War Memorial should note that morning service will be delayed from its usual starting time of 10:30 am.
