Perhaps the highlight event of the term is our special celebration of the restoration and display of St Mary’s First Edition Authorized Version 1611 Bible, on Thursday 7th November at 7pm.
This very precious Bible has been restored and is now ready to be displayed. We are delighted to be running a special ticketed event with the Battersea Society, at which the renowned linguist Professor David Crystal will speak. The event will include music from St Mary’s Choir (including a world-premiere by Simon Bainbridge, a leading British composer) and a dedication of the Bible by the Bishop of Southwark.
Begat: The Sound & Language of the 1611 Bible
by the renowned linguist Professor David Crystal
featuring St. Mary’s choir and an anthem commissioned by Simon Bainbridge
of the Bible by Christopher Lord Bishop of Southwark
Tickets, including a glass of wine or soft drink, are on sale from the Parish Office, at £8. This event is likely to be very popular so advance booking is encouraged.
