Lenten Compline: Join with the RSCM to Sing  - With choirs still not able to sing together, nor congregations, the Royal School of Church Music have designed a new, participative online offering for Lent.   Join them each Wednesday, starting 24th February, at 8pm (GMT) to sing the beautiful, ancient Office of Compline in a live Act of Worship. Enough information will be on the screen for you to be able to join in the basic singing with the cantor; each service through Lent will include a hymn and a choral piece, in a variety of styles. 

 

The Deanery are looking into a Walking Pilgrimage ‘Santiago de Compostela’.  If you are interested  visit this website https://www.mccabe-travel.co.uk/pilgrimages/walking-the-way/  please ignore the date mentioned, as it is just an example tour.  If there was enough of us interested, then McCabe will let us plan our own dates.  Please note, you do need to be relatively fit for the amount of walking each day and the cost for the pilgrimage would be around £1,300 per person.  This includes different hotels each night and baggage is transported between different venues.  If you think you may be interested please call 01474-532505 or e-mail  jim@stgeorgesgravesend.org
