Discover & explore: Lives & thoughts of the Saints

Music and liturgy with the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields at St Stephen Walbrook: A service series of musical discovery exploring the lives and thought of the Saints.

Discover & explore is “like a little jewel with a number of facets drawing us in and lighting our path.”

All Discover & explore services begin at 1.10pm:
  • Monday 9th May: Julian of Norwich
  • Monday 16th May: St Stephen
  • Monday 23rd May: Venerable Bede
  • Monday 6th June: St Columba
  • Monday 13th June: St Martin of Tours
  • Monday 20th June: St John the Baptist
  • Monday 27th June: St Peter
Discover & explore services explore their themes through a thoughtful mix of music, prayers, readings and reflections.
  • “A perfect service of peace in our busy lives.”
  • “Spiritual food in the middle of the day.”
  • “Beautifully and intelligently done.”
The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at that great church. Every year twelve scholars are appointed to sing regular services while also gaining concert experience, benefiting from an extensive training in all aspects of sacred and secular choral music.

St Stephen Walbrook is an Anglican Parish Church which is rich in heritage, but one which remains actively involved in the City of London. With an almost perfect acoustic for choral singing and a renowned organ famed for its regular Friday recitals for City workers, St Stephen Walbrook stands witness next to the Mansion House at the heart of the City it was built to serve.

Opening hours, Monday – Tuesday, Thursday - Friday 10.00am – 4.00pm, Wednesdays 11.00am – 3.00pm. Recitals on Tuesdays (1.00pm) and Fridays (12.30pm), Eucharist on Thursdays (12.45pm).

The Discover & explore service series is supported by The Worshipful Company of Grocers.
