This week at St Stephen Walbrook

This week at St Stephen Walbrook, we continue to show the latest exhibition of paintings by Joe Machine, 'The Life & Legend of St Stephen'. The exhibition can be viewed weekdays 10.00am - 4.00pm (except Wednesday, 11.00am - 3.00pm).

Joe Machine's paintings combine Jewish and Christian iconography in a unique interpretation of the story of the first Christian martyr, who is our Patron Saint. Mysticism, humour, symbolism, narrative and stylized patterning are fused to form these ravishing and reflective icons.

Tomorrow's Discover & explore service at 1.10pm with the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields will explore the life and thought of The Venerable Bede through liturgy, music, prayers, readings and a reflection.

On Wednesday we have a poetry evening arranged by The London Magazine and featuring Steven O’Brien, Joe Machine and Edward Lucie-Smith beginning at 7.00pm. Joe Machine and Steven O'Brien have collaborated on a soon to be published book, Britannia Stories, exploring twenty myths commonly associated with the British Isles. They worked closely in examining the origins of all the stories, and on determining the relevance of each to the 21st century, with Machine’s paintings influencing O’Brien’s writings, and vice versa.
