Roly Bain Memorial Service


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Priest Roly Bain, who died last year, was succentor at Southwark Cathedral before serving in Southwark parishes and later also becoming a clown.

The appropriate date recalls that Roly often spoke of 'the feast of fools' and holy fools speaking truth to power.

In 2014 he said: "The church takes things too seriously sometimes. There is a very old tradition of clowns or jesters in church and they can symbolise comedy and tragedy. I try to fit in as many messages as possible because I am doing Godís work ultimately."
