Evan’s funeral has now been arranged. It will be at 11am on Monday 14 February at the Church of St John of Jerusalem, Lauriston Rd, Hackney E9 7EY, followed by a committal at City of London Crematorium.

The celebrant will be the Rt Rev Jonathan Clark, Bishop of Croydon (formerly Assistant Priest with Evan at St James’), assisted by the Rev Fiona Weaver (former curate to Evan), and the Rev Canon Justin Gau.

Everybody who knew Evan will be very welcome. St John of Jerusalem is an enormous church so there will be no problem about social distancing. Parking however is a nightmare so public transport or a taxi is recommended.
