What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites to which we link.

Resources 'The central liturgical repository of the Royal Army Chaplains Department offering support to some 170 British Chaplains of many denominations wherever the British Army serves at home or abroad. The material is mostly Common Worship, and is presented in a ready-to-print, ready-to-use format. Adobe Acrobat is the preferred distribution. Most of the material is of a general parochial nature, and not too specific to forces chaplaincy. This range of booklets and cards would serve the majority of English parish Churches. The site also has a draft copy of the proposed new Field Service Book. This is planned as a 200-page pocket book containing the core resources of a number of churches for use on military operations'.

Europe: Switzerland, Zurich, 24 - 25 May 2002: International Round Table Discussion
To be held
at the historic Helferei Grossmünster Church in Zurich. The Anglican Centre for Theological Dialogue (ACTD), based in Toronto Canada, is hosting this event at the historic Helferei Grossmünster Church in Zurich. Theme of the event is, "Christ’s Return: The Body of Christ" addressed by four presenters: The Rev. Dr. Dagmar Heller on 'Transforming the Church'; Dr. Helen Cluett on 'The Serpent and the Body of Christ'; Mr. Martin Odermatt on 'The Creative and Destructive Potential of the Sermon on the Mount', and Dr. Robert Strubel on 'The Cross: Masochism or Unavoidable Necessity for Salvation and Healing'. Each 20-minute presentation will be followed by group discussion. Scriptural passages serving as a focus are: John 3: 14-18; Matthew 21: 33-44. In both passages, Christ links recognition of his rejected aspect to the hope of redemption. The question of how to discern Christ’s rejected aspect and to bring about his healing intention is a collective, religious problem that needs to be taken up by the Church. The Centre sees doubt, criticism and questioning as seeds of new understanding. Although affiliated with the Anglican Church, the group’s outreach is ecumenical in the hope of attracting anyone interested in revitalizing the Christian faith. The event is free although seating is limited. Late registration is welcome. For further details e-mail to: For information about ACTD, go to

England -> somewhere (Summer 2003)
'I'm the curate to the Penrith Parish Team in Cumbria, England. Our home is on the edge of the English Lake District with marvellous hill walking, sailing, etc. The town of Penrith is small (15,000) but offers light entertainment, good British Ale, and reflects the somewhat turbulent history of the past (we are only 30 minutes from the Scottish Border). Up the road is Hadrian's Wall, so if you're into Roman history this is the place for you; likewise if you enjoy Wordsworth, we live 20 minutes in the car from his home; if Robert Burns is your style, it's 45 minutes and you're in his home county in Scotland. We're looking to holiday between end of July to beginning of September 2003, for several weeks. Interested? Contact us, Chris Casey,'

Not in the Communion
The Apostolic Charismatic Missionary Church: "We see ourselves as an expression of the ancient-future Church of Jesus Christ, where the streams of Christian tradition and spirituality converge and flow together. Emphasizing the interweaving of the Charismatic, Evangelical and Liturgical/Sacramental, we identify with and stand in connection with the ancient historic apostolic traditions of standing firm on Christ. Our Liturgical Rites are the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil, and the Holy Qurbana."

Servants of Saint Benedict the Moor: An ecumenical Franciscan order, which says: 'We, as brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, desire to live the gospel life in this world honestly, simply, joyfully, and according to the Rule of St Francis of Assisi. ... We exist under the patronage and foundation of the presiding bishop of the Apostolic Catholic Church in America, but we are an ecumenical community.
