“Our souls magnify the Lord”

Members of the Westcott House community (ordinands, partners, staff and children) contributed miniature pictures to our magnificat project, which is displayed in our chapel.

Below are some of their pictures, telling the story of the magnificat.


My soul proclaims the greatness of the lord,


my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour

My spirit rejoices in God

He has looked with favour on His lowly servant,

lowly servant

from this day all generations will call me blessed


the Almighty has done great things for me and holy is his name.


He has mercy on those who fear him from generation to generation

Generations of mercy

He has shown strength with his arm, and has scattered the proud in their conceit,

love and justice prayer

casting down the mighty from their thrones

from their seats

and lifting up the lowly.

the humble exalted

He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty

filling the hungry

He has come the the aid of His servant Israel to remember His promise of mercy,

lines of promise

The promise made to our ancestors, to Abraham and his children forever.
