CORPUS CHRISTI SERVICE 20th June

Come to All Saints’ at 7.00pm on Thursday 20th June for the Service to celebrate the Day of Corpus Christi. This lovely old service is a thanksgiving for Our Lord’s Institution of Holy Communion, in a more joyful atmosphere than its other commemoration on Maundy Thursday.  Though the celebration of Corpus Christi dates back to the 13th century it was suppressed in the English Reformation, and only restored to the Anglican calendar in the 19th century.  It’s a time for incense and processions and blessing – a very special service.
