Choral Evensong is held at 6pm on Sunday evenings during term time. Choral song is a beautiful, traditional service of music from the Choir, hymns, readings, and a sermon.
This term takes us from Christ’s birth to his Passion: we mark this in two special services of words and music. Other Evensong sermons consider the life and writings of St Paul. And, as befits Magdalene’s links with Wales, we mark St David’s day.
