Candlelit Compline – Tuesdays in Lent

April 16 @ 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 16, 2019

The ancient monastic office of Compline derives its name from a Latin word meaning‘completion’.It is above all a service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day.

This candlelit service is sung by a gathered choir who lead the responses, the psalms and sing two anthems. In the stunning space of the Lady Chapel with its magnificent acoustics this is an uplifting and evocative way to journey prayerfully through Lent and find
space for reflection at the end of the day.

The service lasts about 30 minutes.

On Tuesday 16 April Compline begins at 8pm in the Presbytery. There will be an address by our Holy Week preacher, Canon Victoria Johnson.
