Solemn Evensong for the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Every 1 Sunday at 6 pm. This traditional service from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has been sung at St Mary’s for over a hundred years, and forms a central part of our musical tradition. It is an undemanding, gentle service in which the choir takes the leading role in singing the psalms and evening canticles of the Church, enabling us to pause and worship God.
