Candlelit ‘Compline’

Altar at St Mary's with candles

Candlelit ‘Compline’ in the Somerset countryside come and join the singers and congregation at St Mary’s, Orchardleigh by Church Lake on the Orchardleigh Estate near Frome (to find us on SatNav use the postcode BA11 2PH) for an interlude of quiet reflection during Holy Week this year.

A service of Compline, traditionally the last service of the monastic day, will be sung at 6:30pm on Tuesday 16th April and all are welcome.

The Church of St Mary dates back to the 14th century and sits on a moated island adjacent to the lake on the Orchardleigh estate and due to it’s location has no electricity and all services are illuminated by candlelight and the organ is pumped by hand!
