Evening Prayer—First and third Sunday evenings at 7:30 PM

Pastor Angela Freeman leads the prayers and the choir leads the responses during Evening PrayerEvening Prayer services are quiet, meditative services held twice monthly on the first and third Sundays. The Evening Prayer liturgy is simple with emphasis on Word, reflection, and music. The services are lay-led and do not include communion. Instead, the liturgy includes elements commonly found in the traditional evening services such as Vespers, Compline, and Evensong.

On the third Sunday during the school year, Evening Prayer is preceded by “Exploring Boundaries...and Beyond,” an exploration of ideas and values at the boundaries where our faith meets the rest of the world. The presenters come from LCH, the universities, and the wider community. The presentations begin at 6:00 PM in Isenberg Hall and end at 7:15, in plenty of time for Evening Prayer. More information and a schedule of presentations is available on the Exploring Boundaries...and Beyond page.

Please note that in some months a major worship event may replace Evening Prayer. On those evenings, service will still be at 7:30 but may be a Vespers service with the LCH Choir or an event like Advent Procession.
