About Compline Services
Compline, also known as Complin, Night Prayer, or the Prayers at the End of the Day, is the final church service the day and marks the completion of the day’s work. The practice of Compline goes back to the early church, perhaps as early as 200 CE. Christians were taught to pray seven times a day, the last prayer being before the silence of night.
At Plymouth Compline is a contemplative service that emphasizes spiritual peace. Our custom in this service is personal meditation and prayers to begin a night of silence in preparation for entering the coming week with a peaceful spirit.
