Launde 900: Celebratory Service
22nd June, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Join us for this Ancient Wells – Living Water event to mark the 900th anniversary of Launde Abbey: a celebration of the Abbey’s anniversary (followed by a great day out for all the family!)
Our celebratory service will be led by the Bishop of Peterborough, the Rt Revd Donald Allister, and the Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Revd Martyn Snow. During the service we’ll be singing hymns old and new, including some of the winning entries of our Launde 900 hymn competition. We’ll hear readings and poetry, reflect together on the value of prayer, silence and retreat, and have an opportunity to give thanks for the work of the Abbey. We’ll also commit ourselves afresh to the continuing ministry of Launde: our heart of prayer, our warmth of hospitality, and our service of the wider church and community.
The service will be immediately followed by our Great Celebration in the gardens and main house.
There is no charge for participating in this service of celebration although there will be a collection during the service offering you the opportunity to support the ongoing ministry of the Abbey.
