Other Opportunities for Worship
Compline is the last of the four services in the Anglican Daily Office. It is descended from the night prayer said before bed at the end of the monastic round of daily prayer. Compline is a simple office including a confession of sins, one or more psalms, a short reading from Scripture, versicles and responses, the Lord’s Prayer, collects which ask for God’s protection during the night to come, and the canticle, Nunc dimittis. A hymn for the evening may follow the short passage from Scripture. In recent years Trinity choirs have offered Compline on Sunday evenings during Lent and Advent. It will not be offered during Lent in 2020.
