Service of Thanksgiving

Westminster Abbey for Coronation pagesThe Service of Thanksgiving on the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's Coronation at in Westminster Abbey on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013, at 11am was a special event for the Church and indeed the whole country. The service was screened on national television, and some churches and organisations hosted community celebrations, showing the service on a big screen. The order of service is available here and the Archbishop of Canterbury's sermon is available here.

If churches bought a licence for this event (for example, to use in a hall), they could claim a refund on any unused quarters of the licence fee (providing the licence was not needed again for the licence period). Information on refunds can be obtained here.
