St. Martin-in-the Fields Choral Evensong

On Wednesday 20th February 2013 I was in Central London to attend an Opera at the London Coliseum in the evening. After an visit to The National Gallery during the afternoon I attended the Choral Evensong at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

St. Martin-in-the-Fields is a landmark church in the heart of London. It is a hospitable, vibrant and forward thinking community with worship at its heart. Located on the northeast corner of Trafalgar Square, St. Martin-in-the-Fields is steeped in beautiful Georgian architecture which has been imitated across the world.

It was a wonderful experience to visit such a splendid building as well as attending the Choral Evensong which featured the Choral Scholars of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. From London's first free lending library to the first religious broadcast, St. Martin's has broken new ground in defining what it means to be a church.
