    The Optimistic Ebb and Flow of Moorman’s History

    The Optimistic Ebb and Flow of Moorman’s History

    Dr. John R. H. Moorman’s book A History of the Church in England (A&C Black: 1953) outlines nearly two millennia of the Church’s history in the British Isles. Moorman traces the history of Christianity in England back to the early Christian accounts of men like Tertullian in the 3rd century and throughout its various Celtic, Roman, and Norman periods.

    Epiphany Blessing 2021- Chalking the Door

    Following sung matins at Saint Paul’s – students and teachers join us in front of the Church for the blessing of the doors for Epiphany. Chalking the door is one of the Christian Epiphanytide traditions used in order to bless churches and homes.
