Bishop of Lynn asks “what makes cloth holy?”

SoulCircusKL1On Sunday October 14, Bishop Jonathan Meyrick will preside over a Soul Circus service in Kings Lynn exploring why priests wear the clothes they do.

The Bishop of Lynn, the Rt Revd Jonathan Meyrick, will preside over a Soul Circus service asking the question “why do priests wear the clothes they do?” on Sunday October 14, 6.30 pm at the beautiful minster church of St Margaret’s, Kings Lynn.  

Soul Circus is a regular creative, experimental service supported by the Diocese of Norwich and the Youth Task Force.  
The service seeks to inspire and enable you to ask you the questions you always wanted to ask such as:

What is the significance of the priest’s garments? What are vestments?  What do they have to do with Holy Communion, with the life of Jesus and with our lives as his disciples?  
Rev Suzanne Cooke, the founder of Soul Circus and the curate of St Mary’s Church, Watton said: “As you would expect from Soul Circus, the service will honour our rich liturgical tradition and will use a mixture of modern music, ancient liturgy and modern technology to journey through Holy Communion.  
“It will be creative, beautiful and participative”
Everyone is welcome – whether you are High Church, Low Church, denominational, non-denominational, whether you are un-churched, young or old.  
St Margaret’s Church, Church Street, Kings Lynn, PE30 5EB
