CROYDON MINORITY ETHNIC ANGLICAN CONCERN COMMITTEE (MEACC) The Croydon Episcopal Area conveners of MEACC write, ‘Prior to the outbreak of Covid-19, we were planning to go in a particular direction at Croydon MEACC. Yet, during this time of lockdown, with the opening up of unchartered territory in discussions about race and Church, we find ourselves in an entirely distinct place from where we were before. What has become clear in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, is that the MEACC is not just the concern of Christians of colour but are the concern of the whole Church.’
There will be an Open Meeting on Zoom on Saturday 18 July, 1100-1300 to engage with these issues. If you would like to join the meeting, chaired by Bishop Jonathan and concluded by Archdeacon Rosemarie Mallett, please contact email@example.com and we can send you the Zoom link.
2020 marks the 20th anniversary of The Sixteen’s annual Choral Pilgrimage tour. Since 2000 the choir have travelled the length and breadth of the UK, discovering some of the country’s most beautiful architecture and building relationships with wonderful communities, many of which they return to year after year.
This year’s tour focuses on Rome, a city which has inspired countless pilgrimages, and where each of the four composers in this year’s programme created some of their finest work. Motets by Josquin and F. Anerio are framed by Victoria’s powerful Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday, culminating in Allegri’s eternal Miserere.
