The Bundaberg Region community is being offered the chance to honour Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll at a special event this week.
The Anglican Parish of Bundaberg is hosting a service on Wednesday, 14 September from 5.30 pm to recognise her life, faith and all she has done for the nation and the wider commonwealth.
The service will also mark the accession of King Charles III.
Mother Kate Ross said the event provided the opportunity for the community to come together in both grief and celebration to remember the Queen.
“Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, many will wish to remember her and express their condolences to the Royal Family,” she said.
“Indeed, it is important for all those who mourn to come together to share in both grief and celebration.”
Fully muffled ringing of the Peace Bells will take place prior to the service from 5 pm until 5.25 pm.
A condolence book will be available for signatures and messages at the service, and in the Parish Office between 9 am and 1pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
For those who cannot attend the service in person, WideBay ITV will be live streaming the service here, starting with the muffled bells followed by the full commemoration service.
It will also be available on-demand after the service concludes.
