Arrangements during the Interregnum

Fr Bill Wilson is leading the clergy team as Presiding Priest and Fr Gerry Moate is the Hospitaller, with special responsibility for The Less. Frs Mark Young and Martin Freeman continue to preside and preach regularly at services, and the team has now also warmly welcomed Fr Jeremy Haselock, the former Canon Precentor of Norwich Cathedral. We are also joined from time to time by the Archdeacon, Fr Luke Miller, while some midweek services will be taken by Fr Alan McCormack, Dean of Goodenough College. We are extremely grateful to all our priests for everything they do for us.

Concert: A Garland of Carols – Monday, December 18th at 20:30

After the Ceremony of Carols service, everyone is invited (as after all our evening carol services) to the Cloister for mulled wine and mince pies, which are available for a very modest outlay. Then, at 20:30, there will be a concert performance of Anthony Bolton’s A Garland of Carols. Now, this is written for the same forces as A Ceremony of Carols – i.e. three upper voices and harp. Anthony has long been one of the leading and most successful figures in the UK’s financial industry, but alongside this is a wonderful composer. Please do consider coming to hear these beautiful carols. Tickets are £10 (adult), £7.50 (concessions) and £5 (children), on-line, at the front desk, or on the night. Anthony will be attending, so you can meet the composer, if you wish!
