Join us at Southwark Cathedral for this special Service of Celebration as we mark the Coronation of King Charles III.

Join us for a special service of Choral Evensong to celebrate of the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort. All are welcome to hear prayers and Bible readings specifically selected for this momentous national occasion, with music by the Choir of Southwark Cathedral.

The service will be followed by the launch of God Save the King - A Guide to the National Anthem published by Hodder Faith. The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark will be in conversation with Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall who provided the introduction to this wonderful publication, and local artist Rosie Brooks who brought it to life with her colourful illustrations.

First recorded as a prayer more than three thousand years ago and used at every coronation since 973AD, this prayer has become part of who we are as a nation. God Save the King uses the words of our national anthem (first and last verses) and takes us on a tour of the UK, celebrating so many aspects of our wonderful culture: our creativity and sportsmanship, our NHS and frontline services, our rich agricultural and maritime heritage, our forward-looking urban regeneration alongside our rural and seaside traditions and of course our unrivalled ability to queue!

Copies of God Save the King - A Guide to the National Anthem will be available to purchase and Anne-Marie and Rosie will be available to sign copies.
