Westminster Abbey 160th Celebratory Service
As part of our 160th celebrations this year, College House alumni who are based in the London, were treated to a special service at Westminster Abbey to commemorate the history of the College. The special service was initiated by alumnus Paul Johnstone ( CH 1378, 1969-1974). The Dean of Westminster gave special prayers for the College and in particular for the people of Christchurch following the recent earthquake. Guests were then treated to a special tour of the Abbey followed by a short reception in the Jerusalem Chamber, part of the Deanery. We were delighted to be joined by the Dean of Christchurch Oxford who spoke about the history of College House. It was a very special occasion and we are most grateful to the Dean of Westminster for making this special service possible and to Paul Johnstone and former Boardmember Ali Ballantyne for hosting the occasion. Professional photographs will be available on the website soon.
