By kind permission of the Duchy of Lancaster and with the much appreciated co-operation of the Chaplain, we were again very privileged to hold our Harvest Eucharist Service on Sunday. The Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy is a wonderful space, fill the building with our guests, regular worshippers and visitors, then add a superb choir and organist; as we started the service by singing the National Anthem you realise you are in a very special place.
The service as conducted by The Chaplain, Professor Reverend Peter Galloway, with Intercessions read by our very dear friend Geoff Dodgson, Chaplain to the Guild of Agricultural Journalists. The sermon was given by Bishop John Flack. John knew Canon Richard Addington as they worked together in Leeds at the beginning of their years in Ministry. John became Bishop of Huntingdon before moving to Rome as the Director of the Anglican Centre from 2002-2008 and still travels across Europe to conduct Confirmation Services. John retired recently as Assistant Bishop of Peterborough.
Our thanks also go to Thomas Leyland, The Steward of the Queen’s Chapel, and Philip Burg, Master of Music for their co-operation and friendship. We return to the Chapel for our Harvest Service on Sunday 7 October 2018.
