First Tuesday of the Month (Except August)
The ancient office of Compline, also known as Night Prayer, derives its name from the Latin word ‘completorium’ meaning ‘completion’ and is a short service of quiet contemplation for the end of the day.
Compline by Candlelight begins with a ten minute devotional address and is followed at 8.40pm by the office of Compline – a twenty minute service comprising a mix of prayers, music and silence. The hymn, psalm, canticle and responses are sung to plainchant led by members of St Mary’s Church Choir.
