book tickets HERE
The church is open daily
This coming Sunday at St Mary Abbots, we shall be celebrating the Feast of St Thomas the Apostle. At the Family Eucharist at 9.30 am, our children will be reading and leading our prayers, and we warmly invite all families to stay in church so we can worship together. At the 11.15 service of Choral Matins, Fr Peter Galloway will be preaching for us and there will, as usual, be a service of Sung Evensong at 5.30 pm. We look very much to welcoming you.
Next Thursday (7th July), we are delighted to be hosting a wonderful concert by our professional choir, entitled ”Kensington’s Greatest Composers”. Please join us to hear pieces by well-known composers who have lived or worked in Kensington, followed by a glass of wine and the opportunity to speak to choir members. The concert has been kindly supported by John D Wood Estate Agents, who are also celebrating their 150th Anniversary this year, and tickets are available HERE.
I would warmly encourage you to visit the Exhibition, now up in the Holland Chapel, which shows photographs of some of St Mary Abbots’ sacred artefacts and vestments, together with some history and explanation of the liturgies for which they are used. Emmanuel Saint’s wonderful pictures, together with Leonora’s artistic display, all kindly sponsored by Knight Frank, create a wonderful insight into the church’s treasures and their centrality within the parish’s worship today and across the centuries.
Looking ahead already to the autumn, please SAVE THREE DATES; first our Patronal Festival on Sunday 11th September with the Bishop of London, second the talk by the Victorian Society on Sir George Gilbert Scott on 21st September 2022 and finally the Victorian Fun Day for families on 24th September. These all will continue and add to our celebration of our 150th Anniversary, and we hope there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
As always, I wish you every blessing in the week ahead, and hope to see many of you soon.
Almighty God, Grant that your Church may faithfully hold and make known the faith that has come to us through the apostles, that with St Thomas and all your saints we may inherit the glories of eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. [Common Worship, Intercessions for the Apostles]
With my love and prayers
