    Royal Air Force

    RAF Chaplaincy Services at St Clement Danes complements RAF Station Chaplaincy. In London District it works collaboratively with its sister services to provide whole force pastoral and spiritual care, irrespective of religious belief or status.

    For generations, members of the Royal Air Force family have enjoyed services of Holy Matrimony and Baptisms. Memorial and funeral serves have taken special place. These 'rites of passage' remain a strong feature today.

    The church holds the Books of Remembrance to all those who have died in service in the Royal Air Force. It also displays unique RAF artefacts from its 100-year history and treasures from the old parish.
