Here's one for the older hands - but also for the new ones!
What advice would you give to those who are going to a BOC service for the first time?
What questions do those of you thinking of going to a service have in advance?
My own answer to the first question would be to let the priest know you are coming; to watch out for the standing and not to worry about sitting down if you tire; for women, to take a head-covering; not to take offence at our practice of closed communion, it isn't aimed at you personally; stay for the blessed bread of fellowship - and the fellowship that follows.
Any other thoughts??
