We hold a wide variety of special services, including annual celebrations, memorials and commemorations. Many are held on behalf of the church, the Royal Family, or a national or international organisation.
Attendance at our special services is usually by invitation only, but for some of them, you can apply for free tickets. Please check the listings below for details.
