Choral Evensong is one of the glories of traditional Anglican worship and the nation’s cultural heritage. In place of a preached sermon, this service features a Sermon in Music which gives our professional choir the opportunity to sing an extended anthem, or sequence of anthems, on a theme relevant to the liturgical season. All are welcome to attend this beautiful and reflective weekly event.

This service will also stream online on this page at the same time as the service in church, and on our pages at Facebook, YouTube and SoundCloud.

You can also find and subscribe to this service released as a podcast on itunes, Spotify or wherever you find your podcasts.
