A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in association with Ince and Co at St Michael Paternoster Royal on 6 December 2016 from 18:00 - 21:00  - and will be attended by HRH The Princess Royal.  

At our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols this December we will welcome guests to our historic home at St Michael Paternoster Royal to celebrate our 160th Birthday with an evening of carols - followed by a drinks reception at Skinners' Hall.

Last year's event was a huge success, raising £45,000 to support our work with seafarers and their families across the globe. This year we hope to make it bigger and even better! We will be joined by a whole host of important names and faces within the shipping and maritime world, and we are lucky enough to have hymns and carols sung by Lloyd's Choir!

The Most Revd. Frederick James Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Chairman MtS Canada
