Taizé – the history and music

Taizé – the history and music, led by Prebendary David Foster
Saturday 19 November, 10am – 3pm

Followed by a Taizé service at 1.15pm (instead of the normal 6pm service on Sunday 20th November)

Midsummer Night’s Dream

Professor Paul Fiddes will lead a day reflecting on the relationship between drama and spirituality in Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on Saturday 5th November from 10am – 3pm in St Endellion Church.   Drawing on two important quotations from the New Testament in the play, Shakespeare encourages us to find the power of love which enables us to see things more clearly both in personal relationships and in civic society.  The day will conclude at 6pm in St Minver Church with an exciting presentation of a new church ‘liturgy for voices’, combining new poetry, music and excerpts from traditional Christian liturgy, giving opportunities for involvement by the congregation.
