Pray for Provincial Standing Committee

Please pray for Provincial Standing Committee to be held from 27-29 September 2017.

 

Eternal God,

Your Son sent out the twelve to proclaim the Kingdom and to heal:

send your Spirit to empower your Church today

to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom,

to bring healing where there is distress, and

to equip our generation for worship, witness and service,

that the world may know that you have sent us;

for you reign in glory as Creator, Redeemer and Power of love,

one God, now and always.

Amen

Survey for Feedback on Celebrating Sunday Trial Use

Revising APB 1989  Update #12

A Prayer Book for Southern Africa Tomorrow – Today

Under Southern Skies – In an African Voice

Celebrating Sunday

On-line Survey of the Trial Use Period

Eastertide 2017: 16 April-4 June 2017

Greetings in the name of the risen Christ!

On behalf of the Secretariat of the Anglican Prayer Book Revision Sub-committee we trust that you are well and whole-heartedly commend you to God’s life-giving Spirit this season of Pentecost!

As you know, parishes throughout ACSA were encouraged to make use of materials from Celebrating Sunday during Eastertide by identifying “trial use parishes” in which the new liturgies could be used. Hopefully you have been able to experiment with the new liturgy and the time has come to ask for your feedback. This will help the Prayer Book Revision Sub-committee, and others involved, move forward in continuing to shape the new liturgy.

Below are two links to online surveys on the survey platform Survey Monkey. The first is a link to the “Rectors” survey and the second to the “Congregational” survey.

We would like to hear from everyone and anyone who used or had experience of Celebrating Sunday.

Rectors, Worship Leaders, Musicians, etc., are invited to use this link to access the short survey:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NJDFNGS

Parishioners, worshippers and anyone who has exeprienced Celebrating Sunday ‘from the pew’ are invited to use this link to access the short  Congregational survey:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W6P2BWY

The surveys will take a few minutes to complete and the data gathered will greatly assist the Prayer Book revision process. The survey wull close on 30 June 2017.

Thank you for supporting this important work in the life of God’s Church.

This Update was prepared by the Prayer Book Revision Secretariat:

The Reverend Ashley Meyer, Rector, Holy Trinity, Bothasig, Diocese of Saldanha Bay

The Very Mcebisi Pinyana, Dean of Mthatha

The Reverend Matthew Wright, Rector, St Paul’s Scottburgh, Diocese of Natal

The Revd Andy Kruger, Priest-in-Charge, Trinity Church, Cranford, Diocese of New Jersey, USA
