Livestreaming & Advent Services


The great team who organised our livestreaming today

Via ChurchLive and periscope, 3,000 people watched two Advent Sunday services at St Martin-in-the-Fields today, as well as the launch of the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal with St Martin-in-the-Fields exhibition. It was a very special opportunity for us to share key moments in the life of our community with an audience around the world and also those who don’t normally go to church.

At our 10.00am Eucharist, the first Advent Candle was lit and our preacher was Revd Dr Sam Wells. At our 5.00pm Advent Carol Service we explored in words and music our theme for Advent, Experiments in Hope, with the Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields. The preacher was Revd Rosemary Lain-Priestley. Both services can be viewed by clicking here and here. The Christmas Appeal exhibition launch can be viewed by clicking here.

The Advent Carol Service at St Stephen Walbrook takes place tomorrow at 1.00pm and is a shared service for the Bank Churches Group. The service will be led by Revd Sally Muggeridge and the Choir of St Stephen Walbrook. I will share reflections using Advent sonnets by Malcolm Guite. All are welcome.


Hills of the North, Rejoice.
