Choral Evensong at St Mary's Shortlands

Date:22nd July 2018


Location:St Mary’s Church, Kingswood Road, Bromley, Kent, BR2 0HG

Reverend Morag Finch, vicar of St Mary’s Shortlands, invites us to join the congregation on 22nd July at 6:30 Evensong.  The choir, under Director of Music, Canon Claire Tillotson, has a fine reputation and shortly after this service will be in residence at Exeter Cathedral.

The address of the church is Kingswood Road, Bromley, Kent, BR2 0HG. There is limited parking in front of the main church door, but please keep these spaces free for disabled access and unloading. Some parking is available in the streets near the church and the 367 bus runs the five minute journey to the church from Bromley South Station at 5.45pm and 6.15pm. Return buses also run half-hourly.

Unlike many of the churches we visit, St Mary’s was built in the 20th century. The original church, which dated from 1868, was reduced to rubble by a V1 flying bomb in July 1944. The church's spire fell in one piece, flat on the ground, so people joked that they could walk up the spire. The lofty red-brick rebuilt church was consecrated on 20 November 1955 and had its diamond jubilee in 2015.
