Words music and lights to mark the presentation of Jesus in the Temple

As we leave behind the Christmas season the words of Simeon remind us that Jesus is “a light to lighten the Gentiles and…. the glory of thy people Israel”.

Come and join our Candlemas celebration at 5 pm on Sunday, January 30th. The service will last about an hour.



Congregational music will include the hymns Longing for Light, Faithful vigil ended and Praise to the Holiest in the height.

Choir music will include Hail gladdening light (Stainer), Psalm 84 to a setting by Parry, O thou the central orb (Wood) and the Nunc Dimittis (Sumsion in A)


And there will be candles for everyone!
