Choral Evensong

Monthly Choral Evensong at 14:30 (second Sunday of the month)

The pattern of Christian daily prayer can be traced back to the Jews in the time of Jesus. From earliest times, Christians gathered at regular hours during each day and night to hear God’s word, and respond with praise and prayer. The services of Morning and Evening Prayer help Christians of our own day to take part in this.

We offer these services daily through the week (click here for more) but only on the 2nd Sunday of the month (except for July and August) do we come together for Choral Evensong, Evening Prayer sung by the Choir.  Our Choir leads in the praises, singing the psalm, the Magnificat, the Nunc Dimittis and an anthem. The congregation joins in singing a number of hymns. The service lasts about 50 minutes.

O Lord, open thou our lips
And our mouth shall show forth thy praise!
Psalm 51:15
