Vicar's News - 11.09.22

Updated: Sep 10, 2022

A thanksgiving for the life of service as monarch by Queen Elizabeth II will be included in our 10am Choral Eucharist on Sunday. This will include a valediction of our year 12 Choral scholars who have chosen as their farewell anthem, a piece fitting for the coronation of King Charles III in 2023 - Handel's 'Coronation Anthem' No. 1 - Zadoc the Priest.

The church will be open for prayer and reflection from Saturday 10 September at 9am.
