There will be a Parish Pilgrimage to Westminster Abbey on Wednesday 22nd April. This will be an opportunity to visit a magnificent place of worship, attend choral evensong and participate in a private guided tour.
We will meet outside the west door of the Abbey at 4.30pm. We will then sit together as a group for Choral Evensong, which starts at 5.00pm. Following the service, after the remainder of the congregation have departed, our party will be greeted by the Revd Vernon White, Canon Theologian at the Abbey, who will lead our pilgrimage. This will involve visiting and reflecting upon features of historical and religious significance within the building such as the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, the Shrine of Edward the Confessor, the hight altar and Cosmati pavement, and the Chapel of Henry VII. There will be the opportunity to pause for prayer at points during our visit.
There is no cost for the tour of the Abbey although you will need to arrange your own transport to and from the Abbey. Nearest stations are Waterloo or Victoria (Underground)/St James’s Park or Westminster (Underground).
