Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed. 

Today we remember the Battle of Lone Pine. Beginning on 6 August 1915, the battle was intended as a diversion. It was a tactical victory, with the ANZACs capturing the main Ottoman trench line within hours, but it came at the cost of over 2,000 Australians killed or wounded.

This service will be live streamed.
