City of London Brass Band


The 'City of London Brass Band' meets on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in St Giles' for rehearsals. The band is part of the North London Brass Network that has encouraged people to play music right across the capital.

The band's Director, Martyn Stogden, says. "We have a number of local people from the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates, who have come to play with us, including people who work and study in the City, exactly the sort of mix from the community for which we were hoping".

Do you play a brass instrument and would you like to join us and be part of this exciting new venture? We are happy to work with people of all ages and experience who are returning to playing brass or with those who would like to learn for the first time.


We meet most Wednesdays, but it is advisable to check with the band to arrange a first visit. Contact details are on the band's website

www.cityoflondonbrass.co.uk  Please email Martyn for more details at martyn.stogden@yahoo.co.uk or telephone him on 020 8366 0657.

Where Love Is The Way: The Jesus Movement Now

by Bishop Michael Curry


‘Jesus came to earth, Michael Curry says, to show us God’s dream for the world: the dream of a world where no child suffers, no one goes to bed hungry, no one is abandoned and alone: a world where love is the way. He came to start a movement, not to found a religion, and the Jesus Movement has the power to turn the world upside down.’


Entry is by ticket which are free. Tickets can be booked on the St Paul’s Learning and Faith page of the St Paul’s website.
