An opportunity to reflect with beautiful music at the end of the working day.

The service of Evensong dates back to the time of the Reformation, incorporating elements of the Offices of Vespers and Compline following the liturgy set out in Archbishop Cranmer’s Book of Common Prayer.

Join our choir to hear beautiful music set amongst passages of spoken liturgy and moments of contemplative silence.

Choral Evensong usually takes place on Wednesday once a month, except in June when the service is held before our annual Summer Party and in August, when our choir take a break.
