Choral evensong

St Michael’s is one of the very few churches left in Southampton that regularly offers a full choral evensong service. In choral evensong words and music come together, each enriching the other, in order that our senses and our intellects, our hearts and our minds, may help us to draw closer to God who is above all, and through all and in all.

Choral Evensong is sung on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 6:30pm. See more details on the current music list.

…let’s scotch a myth about evensong straight away. People sometimes say that it’s liturgy you don’t join in. How wrong that is! You do join in. But in a contemplative way, by listening, paying attention, allowing yourself to be transported into another place by what you are hearing and experiencing.

— Michael Sadgrove
