Annual Church Service and Reception 2021

 Registration is closed for this event
Our annual service of celebration, dedication and thanksgiving. Please book if you plan to attend the service and/or the reception following the service.  This event is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book.

  
​Annual Service of Celebration, Dedication and Thanksgiving

St James Garlickhythe is the Company’s church in Garlick Hill, very close to the Company’s offices. It is a unique 17th century City Church, and has been a sacred place since 1100AD. Sir Christopher Wren designed the rebuilt St James in 1683 after the Great Fire to be full of light, since when it has become known as ‘Wren’s Lantern’.

The Annual Service will reflect on and celebrate events in the last twelve months.  It will be led by our chaplain, the Rev Helen O'Sullivan.

There is no charge to attend the service but we ask that you register to assist in managing the seating arrangements, and there will be a collection during the service in aid of the church. The service will commence at 5.30pm, but please arrive at the church and be seated by 5.20pm.  For those unable to attend in person, we hope to arrange for the service to be live streamed.

Admission Ceremony and Autumn Reception

After the service, we expect to admit one or two new Freemen and clothe one or two current Freemen in the Livery.  We will then hold a reception at the rear of this wonderful church which will enable you to catch up with colleagues over a couple of glasses of wine, followed by the opportunity to continue at a local pub or restaurant.  There will be a small charge for those attending the reception whether or not you attend the church service.

Please register to attend the service in person or remotely, and to reserve your places at the reception.

Participants already booked are shown here.

Dress code is Business Attire.
