A secret service for the Secret Service

By Donald Sensing

Her Majesty's secret service in Westminster Abbey - Telegraph:

But one of the most extraordinary events ever held in Westminster Abbey passed almost entirely unnoticed – the day the Queen attended a secret church service with a congregation of spies. 
Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh the Prime Minister and several Cabinet ministers, she slipped unnoticed into the Abbey cloister to meet members of MI5, MI6 and GCHQ. 
After the service she took tea with them and discussed some of the finer points of their top secret work.
