Explanation of Celtic body prayer - history

Celtic Body Prayer led by Philip Roderick. 20 -25 minutes; "in addition it would be fun to teach some of my syncopated Afro-Celtic chants accompanied by "Man with a Box" i.e. me with an African drum and cardboard box! I could teach one two or three chants and these would take another 20 mins. They are in contemplative vein and are a sort of sung lectio divina."

Colour-changing LED eggs called Oggs on the altar. Paper chains as the first part of the service.

Curry at Tandoori Villa at midnight for the team. We didn't do as much food in the post-service cafe then so we could be very hungry by the time we'd taken down and locked up.
