Tercentenary Sung Eucharist

A memorable Tercentenary Sung Eucharist was led by The Rt. Revd. Christopher Chessun, Bishop of Southwark to an enthusiastic congregation. Celebrations afterwards continued with the releasing of balloons on Kew Green and wound up several hours later with tea and cakes, by way of a hog-roast and a stirring rendition by Ars Eloquentiae of Vivaldi’s Gloria. With many thanks to all who made it such a wonderful occasion.
