Join us at SBC for our regular College Community Seminars as a specialist in the field gives a theological insight into their specific area of interest. On Wednesday 23rd November between 1:30pm and 3pm, Colin Symes will be sharing about ‘Development of Worship in the Early Days of British Churches.’ Colin Symes intends to cover the development of vernacular worship in early Christian Britain looking at the use of the vernacular in worship (Ireland, Scotland, England) led to a flowering of early worship expression which has left us with a heritage of worship in our own languages. Among others Colin will hope to share a sung translation of the Ionan/Columban hymn ‘O Help of the Labourer’ (Adiutor Laborantium) and the first recorded hymn in Old English (Caedmon’s ‘Now Let us Praise’) with reference also to the ‘Dream of the Rood’.
Colin Symes is the Team Leader of Community Church in Edinburgh. His specific area of interest is in worship particularly the roots of worship in British Churches and the relation to the Celtic tradition.
These seminars are open to alumni, friends, and supporters of the College, as well as the wider public who feel they would benefit from engaging with the topic. For further information please contact Graham Meiklejohn on firstname.lastname@example.org
