The marking of the 500th Anniversary in Colchester, where more martyrs suffered and died in defence of the gospel than any other town, makes it all the more relevant that we should honour the ordinary men, women and children who so bravely went to the pyre rather than deny what they knew to be right.

Dr. Lee Gatiss, author of many books on the period, and lecturer in Church History at the Union School of Theology, will talk about the influence of the Reformation on Church and State, ending with a time for thanks and worship - 'glory be to God alone': one of the 'Five Solas' of renewal. as both Reformers and Martyrs would have wished.

Ian Ray will play the magnificent organ of the Moot Hall, with Joel cooper (trumpet), jessie Ridley (violin) and Gillian Wilson (soprano) - 'I know that my Redeemer liveth', and Luther's great hymn - A Mighty Fortress is our God. All are welcome to this free event but please register with eventbrite at: https:colchester-reformation.eventbrite.co.uk/ or ring 01206 240 627.

Free Parking should have read 'Limited Capacity Free Parking' in the Town Hall Car Park. If full go to the Nunns Road NCP, remembering that North Hill remains closed to traffic on a Sunday and fines will be issued.
