There is no Choral Evensong on June 5, 2022 due to the Ordination Service at 4:00 at Church of the Advent.
Please note: when we are able to attend in person, there will be a limit of approximately 40 people. At this time, we are not anticipating a need to book in advance to attend. If we begin to reach capacity, we will set up a registration process.

As the service is sung by the choir on behalf of those watching online, one can approach this service as one likes: there is little requirement for active participation; one may follow along with the prayer of the service, or merely bask in the music and atmosphere.
In our worship we use language which is poetic and filled with metaphor and wonder – realising that any language about God is limited. We use some ancient words which may seem odd, or may seem to refer to God as male, or in terms which elsewhere we might not choose to use. The poetry and the metaphor are there not to restrict or define our understanding of God, but to remind us that our words are never enough to talk about the Divine: instead we use the beauty of the words and music in our worship to help us glimpse just a little of the God beyond all words.
