The Arts Society Hamburg is presenting its November lecture, held by Jon Cannon, in St Thomas Becket Church as a fund-raising event in aid of the church.
From Chartres Cathedral to Angkor Wat, religion has been the inspiration for many of the
greatest buildings of the world. This lecture explores the architecture of the major religions
of humanity. It lays out the resulting developments in chronological order and shows how the
beliefs of each faith helped to shape its architecture and went on to be explored by designers
To find out more about the event please check our calendar here.

For our next Choral Evensong on 25th May we are excited to welcome the Concordia Chamber Choir from South London.
The choir was founded in January 1998, initially as an offshoot of the Dulwich Choral Society; the inaugural concert was given in Guys Hospital Chapel in November 1998 in aid of the Evelina Children’s Hospital Appeal.
Concordia is made up of approximately thirty singers from around the Dulwich area, and beyond. Initially conducted by Susan Farrow, and subsequently by Graham Ross, the choir is currently directed by Dan Ludford-Thomas, who began with the choir in 2010. Their repertoire includes anything from Thomas Tallis to Arvo Pärt and Eric Whitacre, via Cole Porter, Vaughan Williams and Britten. The choir has toured to Italy, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark.
The ACK (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Christlicher Kirchen) in Hamburg invites everyone to an Ecumenical Service at St Trinitatis Church on 16 May 2018 at 19:00hrs. The sermon will be held by Dr. Matthias Ring, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of the Old-Catholics in Germany.
