The next Theology Group discussion will be led by Canon Richard Franklin who will focus on establishing  the pros and cons of the Reformation.

500 years ago the earthquake in European religious and secular history known as the Reformation began. It had been prefigured by many events in the centuries before but what happened in the years following 1517 when Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg changed the course of history. Many look back to the Reformation as the point when Christianity rediscovered its essential message and threw over the accretions and distortions of centuries of Roman Catholicism. Others view it as a disaster for the church, fracturing its unity and leading to conflict and the proliferation of countless denominations. At this meeting I shall try to explore the positive and negative outcomes of this important theological and historical event and invite participants to reflect on their own reactions to what has been described as the most far reaching event of the second millennium.                    Canon Richard Franklin

St Mary's Church Dorchester

Based on the ancient night and early morning services of Maundy Thursday, this service recreates Jesus’ betrayal, abandonment and agony and it is left unfinished, because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.  The most conspicuous feature of the service is the gradual extinguishing of the fifteen candles called the Tenebrae Hearse until only the top candle, representing of Our Lord, is alight.
