Sermon series: Noble Army of Martyrs
Above the Abbey’s Great West Door stand ten statues to 20th-century Christian martyrs.
This autumn, to mark the 25th anniversary of their installation, a sermon series, ‘The Noble Army of Martyrs’, will focus on the lives of those depicted, their ongoing resonance, and legacy for the Church.
These sermons will be preached during Choral Evensong in the Abbey at 3:00pm on Sundays throughout the autumn. No booking is required.
