More on the Spirituality of Ritual
In the second post of this series, the Vicar continues to explain the deeper spiritual significance of the Gospel Procession, bowing our heads during the Creed and the reconciliation of the Peace.
Why we do the things we do in Church, or the Spirituality of Ritual
The Vicar blogs in the first of a series – explaining the deeper spiritual meaning behind the various traditions and practices that are found in our worship at Holy Trinity.
The Spirituality of Singing
Without doubt the greatest shaper of spirituality within the Christian Church has been the music played during its services. Initially it was the psalms and spiritual songs which had their origin in the Old and New Testaments, but then in the last three or four hundred years, it has been the hymns that we sing.
The Deanery Synod is a body which brings local Anglican churches closer together in mission and service and acts as a bridging point to the wider work of the diocese.
All clergy are ex-officio members, and each parish also sends a number of lay representatives, depending on their congregational size. These are automatically members of their PCCs. The area dean is always one of the clergy, but the synod also has a lay chair and other officers.
Friday 2nd March is Women’s World Day of Prayer: a global ecumenical movement of informed prayer and prayerful action.
This is a worldwide movement led by Christian women of many traditions who call people together to observe a common day of prayer and thanks. More than 170 countries participate in this annual day of celebration, sharing together in solidarity, worship and God’s word.
Our choirmaster, M Woodroffe writes:
We at Roehampton, being an ecumenical set-up, are varied and fascinating in the breadth of our music.
In the 10 am. main service at Holy Trinity we have a traditional robed Choir, all drawn from the church, all keen and feisty – and we sing the classical liturgical repertoire. The beauty of the building is matched by an excellent pipe organ – making it a joy to come and sing: and in addition, we lead in the singing of worship songs and any other forms that come our way. If you like lively music: come to Roehampton.
Theology in the Pub
This new venture, run jointly by Holy Trinity and Roehampton Methodist Church is aimed at getting us out of church and into an environment in which growing numbers of people feel more relaxed and able to join in the conversation. Sharing our experiences of faith, spirituality, ethics and the meaning of life over a drink in a relaxed environment, the group is called No Filter, to show that no topic is off-limits.
