Choral Evensong

6.30pm on the 1st Sunday of the Month

Historically, Choral Evensong is believed to have been derived from two Catholic services, namely Vespers and Compline. Our Choral Evensong is a very special service. Ashdown Forest has a unique beauty in summer and blesses us with a beautiful time of day, and in winter gives us the anticipation of Christmas or spring to come; or maybe it’s because a Sunday evening gives us a time of calm and reflection before we take on the challenges of the week ahead.

Evensong has been defined as a “peace-inducing service in which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night”.

A very warm welcome to our service and we look forward to seeing you.
