Evensong is a service from the Book of Common Prayer which takes place at the end of the working day as the shadows begin to fall when we thank God for all that has taken place and ask for his protection through the coming night. Many people remark that it is a wonderfully meditative service which demands no more of us other than we allow the service to ‘speak’ to us.
The service lasts about 45 minutes and will include a short sermon. Please remember at this time to bring along your own copy of the Book of Common Prayer if you are able to.
