Event Type

On Sunday, November 28, 7PM, All Saints’ Church will present a quiet and candlelit service of Compline.  Compline, traditionally an ancient expression of the Daily Office, is drawn from roots in the early church, and has been adapted for use in our own tradition.  This brief service of 30 minutes will feature the beautiful plainsong melodies which have graced church walls for centuries, as well as exquisite anthems and hymns, by harkening to the season of Advent,  a time of expectation, renewal and hope.  The setting will be offered in candlelight, and will feature an extended quiet organ meditation.
There will also be a small bag of lovely takeaway refreshments which you may enjoy at your home following the service.
There will also be an opportunity for you to light a votive candle in remembrance or honor of a loved one.
This service is free and open to all who long for a quiet center.
