Initial work on St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden was completed in 1633 so the Actors’ Church will be marking the 380th anniversary this year.
The Bishop of London will preside at preach at the 11am Sunday Eucharist on 3 March when the church celebrates the anniversary of its foundation.
The church was not consecrated until 1638 because of a dispute so another celebration can be held in 2018. But as at the 250th anniversary, when Alan Jay Lerner was patron of an appeal, there is again an urgent call for funds. Major subsidence has been found in the churchyard.
