Monday 15 May at 6.30pm
2023 is the tercentenary of the death of Sir Christopher Wren, arguably England’s greatest architect and the designer of 51 churches in London, as well as St Paul’s Cathedral. To mark this anniversary, a major programme of events nationwide is taking place, details of which may be found at www.Wren300.org. The Ecclesiological Society’s contribution to this celebration will take place after the Society’s Annual General Meeting on Monday 15 May. We are delighted to welcome as our AGM Lecturer the leading Wren scholar, Professor Anthony Geraghty of the University of York. Anthony has spent a lifetime studying Wren and his churches and will speak on the subject, “The place of God in the design philosophies of Wren and Hawksmoor.”
Fittingly, the AGM and Lecture will be held in one of Wren’s least altered churches – St Mary Abchurch, Abchurch Yard, EC4N 7BA, courtesy of the Priest-in-Charge, Revd Malcolm Torry. The Society’s AGM will start at 6.30pm, followed by the Lecture at 7pm. There will be a glass of wine afterwards.
Admission to the AGM and Lecture is FREE, and is open to non-members as well as members of the Society. It would help us in our planning if you could register that you will be attending.
The AGM and Lecture will also be live-streamed on Zoom. Please tick the appropriate box if this is how you will be attending and we will send you the Zoom link nearer the time.
