On March 17 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York closed all the churches of the Church of England for public worship. The buildings now lie quiet. But the church of God is never silent and we at St Bartholomew hope to bring you some of this joyful noise out into the world. The service of Evensong is one of the great treasures of the Church of England. It is something which can be enjoyed at home wherever you are, almost as much as it can be enjoyed in a beautiful building.We hope the music sung by the choir of Royal Holloway, University of London, sermons and prayers of the clergy of St Bartholomew the Great might bring you some comfort, some joy, some excitement even. We invite you to join us in this ancient prayer through this most modern medium in this time of the COVID-19 outbreak. *About St Bartholomew the Great - London’s oldest parish church* Built when Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, was King of England. It survived the Great Fire of 1666 and the bombs dropped in Zeppelin raids in World War I and during the Blitz in World War II.
