Queen Margrethe II of Denmark joined the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, the Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Rowell in the re-dedication of St. Albans Anglican Church in Copenhagen last week. In 2012 the church began a campaign to restore the 125 year old church, built with the assistance of Queen Alexandra, the consort of Edward VII and Princess of Denmark. The 20 October celebration marked the completion of repairs to the church’s Victorian stained glass windows and its Queen Alexandra memorial.
In his sermon Dr. Rowell noted the generosity of the congregation in its support for the project hoping those present would “keep this forever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people.”
