The Lady of the Lamp

Marking a century since the death of Florence Nightingale, this act of worship explores the legacy of one of the most influential medics of all time.

Flowing from her Christian faith, the care and compassion that the 'Lady of the Lamp' showed to those wounded in the Crimean War made her world famous and changed the face of nursing for all time.

Members of the Florence Nightingale School Choir join forces with the Guy's and St Thomas' Staff Choir in the chapel of St Thomas' Hospital, London where the design of the ward environment was influenced by Florence Nightingale.

The preacher is The Revd Tom Keighley, a Nightingale Nurse and Fellow of the Nightingale Foundation.
The service is led by The Revd Mia Hilborn, Hospitaller at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London.
