This service is very different from what you might expect when you go to church: a service of quiet contemplation, little overt participation, but with lots of room for quiet thoughtful engagement in whatever way is most meaningful to you.
Evensong, an English adaptation of the much older Evening Offices which predate the Reformation, has been offered around the world in Anglican churches for hundreds of years, a unique and resonant combination of prayer and scripture, as well as being a vehicle for some of the most beautiful sacred music written - settings of the Evening Canticles, the Responses, and choral anthems. At St John's we also offer a short sermon or reflection and a couple of congregational hymns.
Come try this service out and find out why so many find it a balm for the soul.
