St Mary Magdalen's Festival Weekend

Join us as we celebrate the completion of restoration works at St Mary Magdalen's. We are looking forward to be reunited with previous members of our choir, and to the formation of our Clergy Guild. Our special guests this weekend are Lord Williams of Oystermouth; the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Christopher Chessun; and Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History, the Revd Canon Sarah Foot. 

On this occasion, we will also be launching our new venture, The St Mary Magdalen School of Theology, dedicated to resourcing the Church for prayerful, thoughtful, and active Christian living.
