Reformation Thanksgiving Service
A Reformation Thanksgiving Service will be held in St Columb’s Cathedral, Londonderry, on Tuesday 7th of November, beginning at 8 p.m.
The Service has been arranged under the auspices of the Board of Mission and Unity to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and to give thanks for the benefits that have flowed from it.
The Preacher at the Service will be the Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin & Ardagh Diocese, Rt Rev Ferran Glenfield.
Dr Martin Luther’s protest against the practice of indulgences took expression in 95 Theses which touched on questions of grace, repentance and forgiveness. The 500th anniversary of Luther's action provides a significant opportunity for churches to:
- strengthen relationships with one another
- deepen reconciliation between us, for the sake of our witness to the gospel
- promote reflection on what reformation means for us today
