Queen Anne's Service at Westminster Abbey
Tuesday 15th October 2013
On Friday 25 October, Queen Anne’s School will be hosting a special biennial service at Westminster Abbey. The service will start at 3pm and the Preacher will be The Revd Dr James Hawkey Minor Canon and Sacrist, Westminster Abbey.
Queen Anne’s are connected to the Abbey through The Grey Coat Hospital, a Christian Foundation, which founded Queen Anne’s School back in 1894. The Foundation Chalice, which will be carried to the Abbey’s High Altar during the service, is a Victorian silver chalice dating from 1844. It is one of several precious gifts given to Grey Coat since the setting up of the Foundation in 1698.
We look forward to welcoming parents, pupils, past pupils and invited guests to the service at Westminster Abbey.
