The Commander of London & Westminster is pleased to invite members and friends to the Commandery Carol Service, which will take place on Thursday 13 December at 7 p.m. With thanks to our Senior Chaplain, Fr Paul Bagott SChLJ, this year’s service will take place at St Cuthbert’s Church, Philbeach Gardens, Kensington, London SW5 9EB. St Cuthbert’s is conveniently located about a 5 minute walk from Earl’s Court Underground Station.
The Carol Service will be led by the St Lazarus Singers, under the direction of Edward Dobson OLJ; but there will be also plenty of opportunities for members of the Order to join in with a number of carols!
The service itself is free to attend, although there will be a collection for the work of the Order. No booking is required for the service, but it is useful to have an idea of numbers, so please let the Secretary know if you are able to attend. Guests are also very welcome – indeed, this is a perfect opportunity to bring guests (especially those who may be considering membership) to an Order event.
After Carols, you are invited to join us for a two-course buffet supper, with drinks, at the back of the church. The cost of the buffet supper is £25 per head. Booking for the supper should be made no later than Friday 7th December 2018 by completing and returning this form to:
Christopher Burdin OLJ, Secretary of the Commandery of London and Westminster,
23A Arlington Way, London, EC1R 1UY
