Join us at Girton for Evensong!

Girton Choir and Brass in the chapel

Dear Readers and Subscribers,

I hope you are all managing ok through this lockdown, and indeed that the pages of this blog are helping you in one way or another. One consequence of isolation is that my students and I cannot meet together for worship in our college chapel this term, nor can our fabulous choir gather to sing there. Therefore, like many Christian communities, we are finding other ways to worship and to celebrate our traditions. So for each Sunday I am curating a page from which anyone can pray and enjoy Choral Evensong, our usual evening service. There will be responses, canticles, and an anthem sung by our choir, drawn from their various excellent recordings, lovely images of the college and chapel, and each week, a new reflection from me on our termly theme, which is The Lord’s Prayer. Each reflection will conclude with a sonnet.

Now since this blog is the one piece of web technology I actually understand, and can operate from home without assistance, it seemed best that this Sunday page should appear as a blog post here, with a link sent to everyone in the college. Happily this means that I can now invite all the readers and subscribers of this blog, to join us, if they wish, for our Sunday Worship. This can be done at your own time and pace, the page should appear first thing on Sunday morning BST. I hope you all enjoy it!

As ever

  11. Great news. I am looking forward to it. While at the age of 72, I remain a life-long baptist, I have great admiration for Anglican worship and tradition. (Before, the present stay-at-home situation, I attended a weekly early morning Episcopal Communion service. My love for this tradition goes back to my seminary days where my doctoral dissertation was on William Inge, Evelyn Underhill, and Baron von Hugel. Peace & stay safe. R. LaMon Brown

    Thank you Malcolm. I love your blogs. Love your poetry too! I “discovered” your work on ordination retreat – (I am what I once heard described as a “late” vocation!!!! In other words I have grey hair and a grandchild!) Michael Sadgrove quoted you. Have some books. Poetry has always been important to me – It is a means of revelation. A phrase, a choice of words and something happens. Poetry is sacrament. Thank you.
