St. Luke the Evangelist
On Sunday 18th October,
the Revd Father Simon  celebrated the Eucharist at 9.30am in Great St Mary's.
This was followed by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) immediately afterwards.

The service itself will be livestreamed here.  The sound quality has been improved.  Thank you for bearing with us after previous problems.



Here is Sunday's service from St Albans:  Service Sheet
This week's Parish Eucharist waslive streamed from the Nave at the earlier time of 9.30am. The Rev'd Jonny Lloyd preached on St Luke the Evangelist.
