London Bridge Service of Commemoration

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

Southwark Cathedral will be marking the first anniversary of the attack on London Bridge and the Borough Market throughout the day on Sunday 3 June.

Visitors are welcome to come to the 11am Eucharist or simply to come in to light a candle. The principal event will be a Service of Commemoration at 3pm. This will provide an opportunity for the families and friends of those who died, the survivors and first responders to come together and to remember. The service will also recognise all that has happened in the community since the attack.

During the service four new corbels will be blessed one of which depicts PC Wayne Marques, one of the first responders who was injured in the attack.

At the end of the service the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Christopher Chessun will bless an olive tree as a permanent memorial to those who died.

This will be planted using compost made from flowers left on London Bridge after the attack.

A limited number of tickets for the service are available at:
