The one-hour service in St Mary’s Church is organised by Yate Town Council and will start at 7pm on Monday, March 9.
Council chairman Wully Perks has asked everyone to be seated by 6.45pm. He said he wanted the event to be seen as a thank-you to the town community and recognise the contribution made by many organisations, services, charities and individuals to Yate.
They included the emergency and medical services, youth groups, friends associations, those who supported international links and local councillors
The service will include performances by Yate Choral Society, St Mary’s School choir and Yate International Gymnastics Centre.
A group of students from Brimsham Green School will also give an account of a visit they paid to Uganda in 2014.
Light refreshments will be served at the end of the service and a collection made for the Friends of Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre.
