In the beauty of First-Plymouth's Sanctuary with lights dimmed and candles flickering while the schola cantorum chants its way through the ancient liturgy, Compline becomes a doorway into the realm of spirit.  There is no preaching, no words spoken at all.  There are no hymns sung.  It only last 38 minutes, and the only thing a person attending does is light a candle.  But it is utterly captivating.

We invite you to simply walk into this mystical service, sit down and allow yourself to experience deep inner peace.
