Weekly Services

Sundays

Holy Eucharist (said) is celebrated in the Lady Chapel on Sundays at 09:00. Details are always in the church diary (click this link to go there)).

Throughout most of the year there is a Family Eucharist (click this link for details) with hymns at 10:00 each Sunday in S. Bartholomew the Less (just inside the main gate of the hospital). This service is especially suitable for families with children. On a few Sundays in the year and during the Summer Programme this service does not take place, but the details can always be found in the church diary (click this link to go there).

The Sunday Solemn Eucharist is a traditional, formal choral liturgy in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, beginning at 11:00, and is sung by the choir led usually by the Director of Music. Details of what is happening each week and the music that will be performed are always available in the church diary (click this link to go there)). In addition to hymns, the introit, alleluia and communion sentence are sung (in Latin). There is a setting of the Kyrie, Gloria (except in Lent & Advent), Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei, an offertory motet and, usually, a sermon.

Traditional Choral Evensong at 18:30 completes the range of our usual Sunday services. It comes from the Book of Common Prayer (1662) with readings from the Authorised Version (1611). The choir sings the psalm(s), the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, an anthem, and the final Marian anthem. There is usually a sermon (except during our Summer Programme which is usually the four Sundays before S. Bartholomew's Day on 24th August each year). For most of the year, once a month there is Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at the conclusion of Evensong. It is one of the great spiritual experiences offered in London, especially in winter when the darkness folds around the pillars. For information about the music each week and the dates of Benediction, please check the church diary (click this link to go there).
