Until April, the church will be opened for prayer only. Opening times are Tuesday to Saturday 11:30 AM to 2 PM with an extension to 6 PM on Fridays, an on Sundays after service until 12 AM.
Visiting St. Mary’s Organ:
In the frame of the Noon Prayer (from 2nd May to Mid October) it is possible to get a short guided tour of the instrument. At 11.55 a.m. the tour starts at the meeting point in the northwest corner of the nave (close to Mary’s Carpet). Visitors get a brief introduction to the instrument, the playing of the organ can be watched and afterwards it is possible to visit the organ’s interior. All explanations can be given in English.
We kindly ask for a support by giving a donation or purchasing a compact disc etc.
Please note: This offer may be cancelled without further notice (because of deputy players etc.). If you want to be shure that the tour will happen, please contact the organist.
