This Sunday 26 May the Lutheran congregation at St Anne & St Agnes Church in the City of London will gather as usual at 11am.
But it will be for last time.
After a litany of thanksgiving the congregation will walk in procession, carrying some of the treasured objects of the worshipping community, to its new home in St Mary-at-Hill Church off Eastcheap. The Eucharist will be celebrated on arrival.
St Mary’s parish priest Canon Flora Winfield says: “We are so delighted that St Anne’s congregations will be sharing in the life of this place, where the Christian gospel has been preached for over 1000 years, both in words and music and in loving service to the surrounding community.”
Susan Peterson is the Lutheran congregation’s interim senior pastor.
