The Easter Vigil Service at St Stephen Walbrook

The Easter Vigil Service at St Stephen Walbrook is on Saturday 26 March at 6.00pm and includes the lighting of the Paschal Candle, renewal of Baptismal Vows and the first Eucharist of Easter. The setting, Mozart’s Mass in Bb, will be sung by the St Stephen Walbrook Choir with Joe Sentance on organ. The preacher will be The Revd Sally Muggeridge and the service will be followed by hot cross buns and drinks. All are most welcome.

'Lamentation for the Forsaken' by Michael Takeo Magruder can also be viewed. In this art installation, Takeo offers a lamentation not only for the forsaken Christ, but others who have felt his acute pain of abandonment.

Click here to view Arriving at Station XIII, a short series of videos exploring the development of this newly commissioned artwork for the Stations of the Cross project. The videos follow Takeo's progress as he conceives, develops and finally presents his installation at St. Stephen.

The installation was visited as part of a mini-pilgrimage undertaken by the Bishop of London and Archbishop of Westminster to three stations in the Stations of the Cross 2016 exhibition.
