The College is very grateful to the Rector and Churchwardens of St Mary-le-Bow who have kindly agreed to host the evening at a time when Lambeth Palace is undergoing significant works during the Archbishop's sabbatical leave. Evening Prayer is at 5.30pm (paper orders of service are not used – please use the CW App).
