Your Church and The Platinum Jubilee – Resources with a local flavour

Celebrate with your neighbours

Preparing to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June? HOPE Together, the Church of England, the Methodist Church and other partners have created a range of resources to help communities to celebrate. Local residents Les Moir, Catherine Butcher, Mark Bowater and Trevor Malcolm have all played a part in preparing the resources and getting them online. The resources can all be found at

A New Anthem

  • ‘Rise Up and Serve’ has been commissioned by HOPE Together and partners, written by Graham Kendrick, Mal Pope and Rend Collective and filmed at the Tower of London. The anthem was produced by Eastbourne resident Les Moir from the Word & Worship Trust.


Souvenir gift book

  • Our Faithful Queen – a 64-page book full of photos showing the Queen through her life. This souvenir gift book is based on the prayers the Queen prayed in preparation for her Coronation. The book was written by another Eastbourne resident Catherine Butcher for HOPE Together.

Celebrate by serving others

  • 70 Acts of Service’ is an invitation to communities to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years of service by serving others – the 70 ideas are for individuals, small groups and whole communities.


Street Parties


Resources for young people

  • On Her Majesty’s Service’ for 11-14s – seven ready-to-use sessions for youth organisations, schools and uniformed organisation produced by youth specialists from a whole range of organisations.

We hope these resources will help communities to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years of faith and service. Our dedicated website is a one-stop-shop with all the ideas and resources needed.


Kind regards
