Holy Week & Easter at St Stephen Walbrook

This year at St Stephen Walbrook our services in Holy Week and Easter include:
  • Monday 10 April, 1.10pm - Discover & explore: Peter Delaney (Internet). In the final service in our current series of Discover & explore services, which have explored significant figures from the history of St Stephen Walbrook, we will explore the ministry of Peter Delaney and the London Internet Church. Music from the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields will include pieces by Duruflé, Todd, Tallis and Holst.
  • Thursday 13 April, 12.45pm - Maundy Thursday Eucharist. Sung Eucharist and stripping of the Altar, with St Stephen's Voices singing Christus factus est – Anerio, Missa pro defunctis a 4 – Victoria & Tantum ergo - Duruflé. Celebrant & preacher - Revd Sally Muggeridge.
  • Saturday 15 April, 6.00pm - Easter Eve Vigil Service. Renewal of baptismal promises, lighting of the Pascal Candle and First Mass of Easter, with St Stephen's Voices and Joe Sentance (organ). Setting - Schubert in G. Celebrant & preacher - Revd Jonathan Evens.
  • Saturday 15 April, 10.00pm - Sunday 16 April, 6.00pm, Stations of the Cross All Night Vigil. Stations of the Cross brings together 14 video works by Mark Dean that reinterpret the Medieval tradition of making a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the path Jesus walked to Calvary on the day of his crucifixion. The videos are not literal depictions of this journey. They rely upon Dean’s trademark appropriation of iconic film and video footage and music, to introduce visual and aural puns that behave as the generators and interrogators of meaning within the work, setting up a series of disputations between the different elements being sampled. They will be projected onto the circular Henry Moore altar at St Stephen Walbrook throughout the night on Easter eve. Audience members are invited to stay for the duration but free to come and go, as part of a vigil event that culminates in a performance of A Prelude to Being Here by Lizzi Kew Ross & Co and an optional dawn Eucharist. A second part to this project will be Stations of the Resurrection at St Paul's Cathedral, Wednesday 26 April 2017, 7 — 9 pm. Both events are free but places are limited. 
You would be most welcome at any or all of these special services. Please RSVP to, but for Stations of the Cross and Stations of the Resurrection please book free tickets in advance from: and

The new series of our Discover & explore services will begin again on Monday 24 April when, together with the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields, we will begin exploring themes related to Reformation500.
