Art Made by St. Ursula’s School

68 Crooms Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8HG

Our Ladye Star of the Sea & St. Ursula’s School are pleased to share St. Alfege Church Advent Windows for 2017. We are calling the window “Jubilation” not only because it’s the theme for Advent Windows this year, but also to mark the anniversary of our school this year.

Our window can be seen at the Presbytery of the church on 68 Crooms Hill. The artwork was completed by the school’s art department with assistance from the St. Ursula’s students.



Strong Reason & Good Fancy

28 King George Street

Greenwich, SE10 8QD

Our window is a celebration of Nicholas Hawksmoor, the clerk turned visionary who rebuilt St. Alfege Church 300 years ago. A hard-working man, with fewer aristocratic patrons than his rivals, he sought for the eternal, believing that do do otherwise means, “we doe but dress things in Masquerade.”

This window will be on display all day, but will be lit at night.

The window will be ready by 7:30 p.m. on 10 December. Neighbours and all-comers are warmly invited to join us for mulled wine, and quite possibly, mince pies.
