Compline - 7:00 p.m. on 2nd & 4th Wednesdays following SUPPER at St. Martin's. Compline, “A Nightcap for the Soul” is a beautiful sung, 20-minute service to close out the day. During Lent, compline will be held WEEKLY on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., preceded by a either SUPPER or a simple soup dinner.
Choral Evensong with sermon is held at 5:00 p.m. on the first Sundays of the month from October to June in the Church.* Childcare is available for this service. The Anglican service of evensong dates from the 1549 Book of Common Prayer. The service is the result of the joining of two of the ancient Sarum services—Vespers and Compline—into one service by Thomas Cranmer, first Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury and author of the first Prayer Book. St. Martin’s sung Evensong services include sermons by guest preachers.
*Some months a strict evensong service is replaced with another special worship and music event like a Requiem, Advent Procession, or Christmas Lessons & Carols.
