St James Institute: Hatch, Match and Despatch

17 March 2019 (or 21 or 28 March)
Presented by Associate Professor Michael Horsburgh AM. Anglican prayer books contain services that are used only when the necessity arises: baptism, marriage and funeral services are the chief of these, but there are others. What are these services about? How did they come to their present form? Do they contain any surprises? In conjunction with this seminar, there will be a display of the Parish Registers dating back to 1824 and a display of some archival material charting the history of some of these 'occasional services' at St James'. Times vary according to date. St James' Hall, Level 1, 169–171 Phillip Street. More information and bookings
