Epiphany carol service a great start to the New Year

Livability’s annual Epiphany carol service, held every year in the Tudor Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula in the heart of the Tower of London, took place on 5 January 2014.

This inspiring event, attended by over 200 people, helped us to start off 2014 with a joyful, festive service of praise and thanksgiving.  It was a wonderful way for all of us at Livability to thank our supporters, volunteers and staff for their commitment and hard work in 2013 and to commit our work for disabled people in the New Year to God.

livability Epiphany Service 2014 (3)Collection and gifts helped us raise over £4,000 for Livability. The renowned Chapel choir led us in worship and provided a feast of seasonal music in this unique and historical setting.

The service is traditionally attended by the Lord Mayor of London, wearing a special chain of office, a Collar of Esses, It is suggested that the Collar of Esses belonged to Sir Thomas More whose shrine lies in the Chapel’s crypt. This year’s Lord Mayor is Alderman Fiona Woolf CBE.
