13 May                    SACEP:  Land of Promise? Perspectives on the situation in Israel and Palestine today.

The quest for justice and peace in the Holy Land is problematic  and fraught. It presents difficult questions for contemporary Christians.  Yet, as many readily recognize, the issue of peace in this small corner of the Middle East affects the wellbeing of our whole world. This SACEP study day explored the situation in Israel and Palestine from various angles – biblical, theological, historical and practical . It did not seek to offer easy answers, but aimed to delve into and air the issues with which thoughtful Christians need to wrestle as they pray and work for peace in the land of the Prince of Peace.

SACEP: "Discipleship", was led by Bishop John Pritchard on 8th October 2016

"Words for Worship", held on 30th May 2015, was led by Alison Callway, leader of the Lay Ministry Training programme of the Diocese of Rochester, and her husband, Peter, a parish priest. The meeting was aimed at people preparing services of the word. It provided a good opportunity to meet people from different churches and discuss different approaches to worship. Participants spent time looking at the theology of worship, from the standpoints of scripture, reason and tradition, and undertook practical exercises in writing prayers in collect format and in using the resources from Patterns for Worship in service planning.


The 2015 Swiss Archdeaconry Choir Festival was held at St Andrew's, Zurich (10-12 April). The choir director was David Hill, and the organist James Orford.
