Events and Conferences

WHENEVER WE HEAR OF a meeting, conference, exhibit, lecture, or special event that is of interest to Anglicans, we list it here. Generally we prefer to list only events that have a wide appeal, on the diocesan or national level. Alas, we cannot list most parish events.

Future and Current

England: Little Gidding 1 December 2018: Nicholas Ferrar Day
'Nicholas Ferrar is commemorated in the Calendar of the Church of England on the date of his death. Each year, on the Saturday nearest that date, a commemoration is held at Little Gidding at the church where he and his family worshipped, and outside which he was buried in 1637. The Revd Mandy Flaherty, Priest in charge, will preside at a celebration of the Eucharist at 10.30am, following which the Chair of the Friends of Little Gidding, Canon Simon Kershaw, will give a talk in Ferrar House on the "topography of Little Gidding" in the time of the Ferrars, and what we can learn from the landscape today. After lunch, the AGM of the Friends of Little Gidding will take place in the House.'

Worldwide: 18-25 January 2019: Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
'began in 1908 as the Octave of Christian Unity, and focused on prayer for church unity. The dates of the week were proposed by Father Paul Wattson, cofounder of the Graymoor Franciscan Friars. He conceived of the week beginning on the Feast of the Confession of Peter, the Protestant variant of the ancient Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, on January 18, and concluding with the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul on January 25.'

USA: Connecticut, New Haven, 25-26 January 2019: In the Spirit's Tether: A Centenary Celebration of William Palmer Ladd and Percy Dearmer at Berkeley
These two great liturgists were also keen advocates for the social witness of the Church, and opponents of any narrow approach to worship that failed to address its connection with life in general and the demands of justice. This symposium marking the centenary of Ladd's appointment and of Dearmer's term as visiting professor comes as the Church considers liturgical renewal again. Speakers will reflect on the contributions of these remarkable figures and the challenges of the present and future.

Worldwide: 25 May - 4 June 2017: Thy Kingdom Come
In May 2016 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invited people to join a wave of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost. This is traditionally a time when the church focuses on prayer, just as the first disciples gathered after they had watched Jesus ascend into heaven. […] The hope is to see at least 80 per cent of Church of England churches and cathedrals taking part as well as many other denominations and the churches of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Leaders from the international Methodist church, the Free churches, the Roman Catholic Church, Pentecostal churches and several of the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches in the UK have all signalled their support.'

The scrolls, codices, illuminated manuscripts, and printed volumes are complemented selectively by important bindings, early photographs, prints, maps, and liturgical or ritual objects dating from the fifth century of the Common Era (CE) to the present.'
