worship and performance at Downing Place


When our online services began in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, our musicians stepped up to the challenge of presenting a great variety of musical pieces each week, to accompany worship and to provide a sensitive and inspiring background for our reflection.

Over time, we have acquired a ‘library’ of these pieces which deserve to be heard in their own right, featuring not only our own talented Directors of Music, Mark Dawes and Ian de Massini; but our minister Nigel Uden and other church members.

Downing Place organises free weekly lunchtime concerts every Wednesday at 1pm.

Demand from performers for slots is high, and we have a wonderful variety on offer, from piano, voice, brass, string quartets, organ, guitar, classical accordion and more.

Concerts last around 50 minutes and there is a retiring collection each week for our Monthly Special Cause.

As we plan our return to our newly refurbished premises in Spring 2021, we have a wonderful series of concerts lined up, .
