We’re recruiting! Pastoral Assistant wanted!
We are recruiting for a new pastoral assistant for the year beginning in September 2017. This is a role that allows a young person to serve in a busy, growing, inclusive, community-centred central London church. Often – but not always – someone does this while discerning if they are called to ordained ministry.
The advert for the role can be viewed here.
If you would like to find out more about this exciting and challenging role, please speak to Fr Sam on 07792786442 or email.
Tuesday Lunchtime Contemporary Concert Series
This Tuesday, 28 February, we welcome Cristina Grifone (Voice), Kelcy Davenport (Speaker), Kevin Flanagan (Bass Clarinet), Ian Mitchell (Bass Clarinet), David Ryan (Clarinet / Video), William Crosby (Guitar) and Clare Simmonds (Piano) for ‘Recitativo’, the fourth and final concert in Borough New Music Series 1. This is a performance of David Ryan’s “Recitativo – Fragments (After Lucretius and Negri)”, which explores both the relationship between the speaking voice (as a kind of narration) and the possibility of creating an open work that integrates sounds and images.
Hear a taste of the music and from the Artistic Director, Clare Simmonds, on Resonance FM. Click on the button below to hear the radio show!
