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??

In Christ,

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
