Pastoral Liturgy: Can we still worship with the Book of Common Prayer?

  • Date & Time: Friday, 15 Jun 2012, 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM

The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is foundational for Anglican liturgical and theological identity but only selected parts are still used today. The day will focus on the theology and liturgical background to Morning and Evening Prayer, Holy Communion, The Burial Service and Holy Matrimony, asking whether social and ecclesial context affects what we might and might not want to use.

The day will be chaired by Dr James Steven. Gordon Jeanes and Adam Dunning will co-lead the course.

Price: £45 (includes refreshments and lunch)
