The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity comes around every year from 18-25 January. Since it was started by Benedictine monks, it is right that we at Downside Abbey participate.

For several years the choir of Wells Cathedral has come to Downside to sing Choral Evensong on the Sunday in the Week, and this year was no exception. We were pleased to welcome the Precentor once again, Rev Nicholas Jepson-Biddle, and the choir of men and boys, who sang the service. It was all followed by tea, of course!

The Monks and chamber choir of Downside School will sing Latin Vespers in Wells Cathedral on Friday, 24 January at 5:15pm. All are welcome!
