There has been a worshipping Christian community on the site of All Hallows since AD 675. Today we seek to serve the busy City community that surrounds us by offering space for peaceful reflection and prayer during weekdays together with a regular programme of services and events timed to fit in with working hours.
There are short services of Morning Prayer most weekdays and a said Eucharist, lasting 30 minutes, at 8.30am every Thursday morning. We have also started a weekly lunchtime communion service in the Columbarium Chapel in the crypt on Tuesdays at 1pm. Lasting around half an hour, this is an opportunity to take time out in the middle of the day to meet with God in word and sacrament. The prayers include a focus on healing as we hold before God those for whom prayers have been specially requested.
On Wednesdays at 6.00pm our Taizé service (35 minutes) provides a contemplative space at the end of a busy day in which candlelight and meditative chant draw us closer to God. There are also short lunchtime services for major weekday commemorations in the church year such as Ash Wednesday. Please check the calendar page for further details and service times.
You are very welcome at all of these services, or to simply to drop in and spend a few minutes in the main church or one of the peaceful chapels in our crypt during the day.
The parish clergy are also readily available to discuss matters of faith or just for a friendly discussion at other times, either after our services or by appointment: please feel free to contact us.
