A SPECIAL Songs of Praise service is replacing Evensong at St Albans Abbey on Sunday evening (13) in aid of the St Michael's Church Roof Appeal.

Well-known hymns will be sung and the service will be led by the Abbey Girls Choir in support of the appeal which followed the theft of a large section of roof from St Michael's Church in October.

The service will be held at 6.30pm and Canon Stephen Lake, Sub Dean of the Abbey, said: "The Abbey is the largest roof in Hertfordshire. It will be good to come together and sing to raise the new roof for St Michael's. I appeal to everyone, do come and support the Songs of Praise for St Michael's
