Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

St Botolph's Day 2008

The ancient churchyard of St Botolph's was en fete for Wednesday 18th June, the date chosen this year to observe the parishes Feast of Title. Around 150 people gathered in church to celebrate the saint.

The Choir performed a new work specially composed for the occasion- the Missa Sancti Botolfi by Francis Jackson. The Revd Robert Alves from our partner church in the United States, St Barnabas, Greenwich, Connecticut preached and the prayers were led by the Rector of the other St Botolph's- St Botolph Aldgate, The Revd Dr Brian Lee.

Canapes followed in the Church Hall and there was the feeling that Botolph had been well and truly observed!
