All Saints' Day Choral Evensong

The Office of Choral Evensong

Evensong is a service of reflection, of allowing oneself to hear God through the readings, psalms and Canticles.  It is offering to God beauty in language and music, remembering in the words of The Book of Common Prayer, that “in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength.”  Here, within the sacred space of the church, it is hoped that you may be able to forget the pressing demands and ceaseless activity of daily life and be present with God.
