Choral Evensong

Sunday 19th June 2016: 6pm

The evening service at St John’s on June 19th  – being the third Sunday in the month – will be that of Choral Evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer; a service loved by many for the ebb and flow of the traditional language as well as for the music.  Many like it too for its passive nature – the choir does the singing, you can listen to the readings and either join in the hymns or follow the words as you please. You will be most welcome

The service is led by the Revd Jane Tailby.
