God Save our Gracious Queen: Liturgy at Times of National Importance

  • Date & Time: Friday, 20 Apr 2012, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This year the Queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee. At times of national celebration or national mourning individuals and communities still instinctively turn to the Church to give expression to their feelings and hopes. But what is our underpinning theology of such events? What kind of opportunity do they offer for us to share the gospel with those who are not regular church goers?

The day will draw on experiences of recent liturgical events at times of national importance and will include a particular focus on preparing liturgies for the forthcoming Jubilee celebration.

Price: £45 (includes refreshments and lunch)
