The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

Choral Evensong

This beautiful service is sung by the choir during school term-time, and follows a timeless structure of psalms, readings, hymns and prayers, using traditional language.

Taking place as the day draws to a close and lasting around 45 minutes, choral evensong is an opportunity for people to take a moment to pause from their busy lives and reconnect with their spiritual lives whatever they believe.

You are welcome to join us whoever you are, and whatever you believe. There are service sheets to guide you through the service, or you can sit at the back of the church and just listen.

During school holidays, the service may be sung by other choirs such as the St. Peter’s Singers, or may be a spoken service with hymns.
