St Lawrence Jewry Annual Service

Monday 27th July 2015

Every year since 1957 St Lawrence Jewry has celebrated its rededication and restoration following the near destruction of the Church during the blitz. We were present this year as the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs joined the simple service of rededication. Fewer than ususal were able to attend because various conflicting dates meant the service was held after the Guildhall had gone away for the summer but we were a respectable number and we gathered afterwards for delicious nibbles and a glass of wine in the chapel adjacent to the nave. This is of course 'our church' as it is the church of our honorary chaplain,The Rev David Parrott, and we were delighted to be able to support him. Our next official Company visit to St Lawrence Jewry will be our Carol Service in December where we will once again be treated to glorious music from the Sevenoaks School Choir and to mince pies and mulled wine. But that will be another story.
