St Bride's: News

Remembrance Tide 2020

Remembrance Tide 2020

Updated 4/11/2020 following new government restrictions.

St Bride's will once again be holding a series of services this Autumn focusing on the theme of remembering.

These significant events bring us back in touch with those whom we love but have lost; help heal past memories; and allow us to acknowledge the devastating lessons of history so that we can learn from them.

All of the events will happen both in church and online.

Choral Eucharist for All Saints' Day

Sunday 1st November, 11am

8.jpgOur All Saints' Day service is an occasion when we remember with thanksgiving all those whose lives have been shaped by God's grace who inspire and encourage us by their example. In the New Testament, St Paul routinely addresses the ordinary Christians in the churches to whom he is writing as 'saints': it is helpful to remember that his message is addressed to all of us.

Music at this service:

Setting: Mass for All Saints - Peter Aston
Canticle: Jubilate in C - William Boyce
Anthem: O quam gloriosum - Tomás Luis da Victoria

An online version of this service will be broadcast 'as live' at the same time as our service in church.

All Souls' Service

Sunday 1st November, 5:30pm

7.jpgThis is one of our most popular and most poignant services in the year, at which we commemorate family members, friends and loved ones who have passed away. During the service their names are read aloud and candles will be lit in their memories.

If you would like to remember someone by name during this service, please contact our administrator claire.seaton@stbrides.com.

An online version of this service will be broadcast 'as live' at the same time as our service in church, which will leave space for you to do your own remembering (during the time when the names are being read aloud in church) and to light your own candle at home.

Music at this service:

Nunc Dimittis from Short Evening Service - Orlando Gibbons
Anthems: i) Ubi caritas - Ola Gjeilo; O salutaris hostia - Ēriks Ešenvalds

Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 8th November, 10:50am

1.jpgOur annual Remembrance Sunday service begins slightly earlier than usual so that we can begin with the traditional two minute silence as a bugler plays the Last Post. The service will include a liturgical performance of Fauré's Requiem Mass, sung by the St Bride's Choir, accompanied by the St Bride's Orchestra.

A particular focus of our service this year will be the remembering of those employed in the newspaper industry who lost their lives during the two world wars.

The service has been pre-recorded and will broadcast on Facebook and YouTube

Choral Evensong: Remembering Journalists & the media

Sunday 8th November 2020, 5:30pm

Having welcomed our choir back to their regular Sunday evening slot the previous Sunday we have sadly had to cancel them again and choral evensong remains suspended. On this key day of remembrance, our prayers at this service will focus particularly on journalists and those who work in the media, who have lost their lives.

The service has been pre-recorded and will broadcast on Facebook and YouTube
