Candlelit ‘Compline’ in the Somerset countryside

Story posted on

Come and join the singers and congregation at St Mary’s, Orchardleigh by Church Lake on the Orchardleigh Estate near Frome 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 its location has no electricity and all services are illuminated by candlelight and the organ is pumped by hand!

The parish of Lullington (BA11 2PG) with Orchardleigh (BA11 2PH) www.lullandorch.org.uk is a Prayer Book parish and a member of the Prayer Book Society, all the Sunday services are conducted according to the ‘Book of Common Prayer’.
