BCP Lecture

♦ By Harry Latham ♦ Posted in EventsComments Off on BCP Lecture

As part of our festival to celebrate the 350th Anniversary of The Book of Common Prayer, we will be holding a public lecture at St Giles’ Church.

We are delighted to welcome the Reverend Doctor Andrew Atherstone who will address the question ‘Is the Book of Common Prayer good news?

Dr Atherstone is tutor in History and Doctrine at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, Research Fellow for the Latimer Trust and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. His recent publications include Oxford’s Protestant Spy: The Controversial Career of Charles Golightly (2007), The Martyrs of Mary Tudor (second edition, 2007) and Oxford: City of Saints, Scholars and Dreaming Spires (2008). He is also editor of The Heart of Faith: Following Christ in the Church of England (2008).

Andrew is also assistant minister in Eynsham and Cassington, two villages in West Oxfordshire, where he lives with his wife, Catherine, and their three children. Visit Andrew’s website here.

The Book of Common Prayer is a significant historical text marking important shifts in the political and cultural world of its day. Since its publication it has influenced many national events and has shaped the spiritual formation of generations of people around the World. We therefore hope that this will be an interesting and engaging evening whether your interest is historical, social or religious.


The Lecture is being held at St Giles’ Church on Thursday 4th October. The evening will begin with drinks and nibbles at 8.00pm and then continue with the lecture and a series of readings from the Prayer Book.
