Please note: There will be no service of Choral Evensong until the new year. We invite you to join us each Sunday of Advent at 4:00 pm for our Advent services. Details are available on our page about Celebrating Advent.
At this time, we are aligning our policy around mask use with Provincial and Diocesan guidelines. Masks are encouraged, but at the discretion of the individual. Please respect each other's decisions around personal safety, and remember that our church has lots of room for those who wish to remain distanced.

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.
