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.
