Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

Christmastide draws to a close with the Feast of Candlemas

The Church keeps more than 12 days of Christmas - the celebrations of Christ's Nativity officially continue until the commemoration of his Presentation in the Temple (also called Candlemas) 40 days after his birth on Christmas Day. St Botolph's is anticipating the Feast this year, in order to be able to celebrate it at the main Wednesday service - please join us for a candle-lit Choral Eucharist with joyful music by Byrd and Weelkes this Wednesday, 30 January at 1.10pm. The Crib will remain in place until the end of the week.
