Sunday 10 January
12.30pm (approx) at London Bridge; free
The congregations of Southwark Cathedral and the parish
church of St Magnus the Martyr in Lower Thames Street gather
in the middle of London Bridge for the annual ceremony of
the blessing of the river. Since the building of the first
bridge across the Thames, the spiritual care of all those
who have used it has fallen to the parish churches located
at either end. In a ceremony that draws on traditions
throughout Europe, prayers are offered for all those who use
the river for work or leisure. This Thames tradition follows
the Orthodox custom of hurling a cross into water as a
symbol of Christ's birth and baptism which is celebrated on
the Sunday after the Epiphany. All are invited to join the
congregations for this occasion.
