Upcoming Event at St. Michael's
MONDAY 4TH JULY, 5.30pm
Festive Choral Evensong to celebrate the 300th anniversary of one of England's best-loved poets, Thomas Gray, who was baptised in St Michael's.
The service will be attended by The Lord Mayor and representatives of many of the City of London Livery Companies, as well as poets and academics.
The music will be provided by two choirs: those of St Michael's Cornhill and Pembroke College, Cambridge.
A specially-commissioned anthem by Philip Moore (set to words by Gray) will receive its first performance.
You are strongly advised to arrive early, since seating will be at a premium for this joyful thanksgiving for a productive creative life.
About St. Michael’s
Welcome to the St Michaels’s website. We hope you will feel free to visit our church, to join in our worship, to find an oasis of peace in a busy world, or simply to see the 17th century structure and its 19th century furnishings. St Michael’s is one of the few churches in the City of London which has regular Sunday services.
Every Sunday at 1100 there is a Sung Eucharist with professional choir – our priorities are dignified worship, good music and biblical preaching.These together constitute the genius of St Michael’s, and draw people from a wide area to join in worship which is formal, recognisable and, we hope, captivating. The service is followed by an opportunity for refreshments and conversation.
There is a said Eucharist every Wednesday and Friday at 1310, with a short homily.
A full range of occasional offices (Baptism, Confirmation preparation, Confession, marriage, funeral and memorial services) is also available
