PLANS ARE ANNOUNCED FOR THE PRAYER BOOK SOCIETY’S ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN LONDON

20th August 2021

Plans for the Prayer Book Society’s annual conference in London next month are
announced this week.

‘It will be good to meet members face-to-face again as last year’s conference had to
be held online in view of Covid restrictions,’ says the society’s chairman Bradley
Smith. ‘Non-members also will be very welcome this year.’

The venue for the conference and AGM on Saturday, September 11 will be St
James’ Church in Sussex Gardens.

In addition to the election of new trustees and other formalities, the agenda includes
a talk by guest speaker Drew Keane, a lecturer in the Department of Writing and
Linguistics at Georgia Southern University in the state of Georgia, USA.

As the first holder of the Prayer Book Society’s John Cosin Scholarship – established
to encourage academic research relating to the Book of Common Prayer – Drew
currently is undertaking doctoral research at the University of St Andrews in Fife,
Scotland.

The title of his talk at the Prayer Book Society’s conference will be ‘Let me hear if
thou canst say’: The Useful Orality of the Prayer Book Catechism.

The conference will conclude with Choral Evensong conducted by the vicar of St
James’ Church, the Rev Paul Thomas, a former deputy chairman of the Prayer Book
Society.

For more details, or to reserve a place and book lunch at the conference,

available to view live on the Prayer Book Society's Facebook page at
