Trumpet Sounds Remembrance in Bahrain

Visiting Chelsea Pensioners join the congregation

St Christopher’s Cathedral, Bahrain is in the heart of the Capital City, Manama, and hosts a Remembrance Day Service every November.  Ambassadors, Muslim leaders, military personnel, and Christian clergy and people of all denominations gather to remember the fallen at the Cathedral, Christian cemetery, and British Embassy.  The multi-faith and multi-national prayer gathering provides a prophetic voice for peace in a divided world.
