Father’s Day isn’t a day of celebration for everyone.

For many it’s a day that brings up fond memories tinged with sadness as we think about loved ones who have passed away.

It is in recognition of this fact that a special Father’s Day Memorial Service will be held at Tweed Valley Cemetery in Eviron this Friday, 30 August at 11am.

The combined memorial service by Murwillumbah Churches Together and Tweed Valley Cemeteries, aims to give people a chance to stop, re ect and remember the good times with loved ones who have passed on.

‘While many Australians attend public memorial services such as ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day, few people get the opportunity to attend memorial services for their own loved ones,’ said Living Waters Church Pastor, Rob Stuttle, who will be among ministers leading the service.

‘A memorial service such as this gives us a moment in time out of our busy lives to stop and reflect.’

‘For me personally, it gives me the time to think about my mother, father and friends who have passed on.’

‘It also helps people to come together as a community, meet and share stories about their loved ones.’

Pastor Stuttle said the Father’s Day memorial service was not only an opportunity to think about fathers who had passed away but also a time to remember all loved ones.

Light refreshments will be provided following the memorial service.

The Tweed Valley Cemetery is located at 813–871 Eviron Road, Eviron.
