Open-air Ascension Day Eucharist at Finchale Priory Thursday 25th May 2017 at 6.30pm
May 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Every year St Oswald’s parish church organises an open-air Durham Deanery Eucharist at Finchale Priory on the evening of Ascension Day. This service in the ruins of the medieval Priory is held within the space that was the Priory’s Chapel, to a background of birdsong and the rushing water of the River Wear. It provides a continuity with Durham’s medieval past and, on a fine spring evening, is an uplifting experience shared by members of the churches of Durham Deanery. This year the preacher will be the Reverend Dr Alan Bartlett.
