Suggestions For Celebrating 400 Years Of The King James Bible/Authorised Version
1 Use the KJV/AV at:
- Evensong, throughout the year;
- One service a month;
- A special service.
2 If your church has a choir:
- Use anthems/verse anthems with texts from the KJV during services for the year and make it known that the text is from the KJV;
- A concert of choral works which use texts from the KJV;
- A performance of some/all of the Messiah.
3 The Royal School of Church Music will be publishing a special service put together to mark the celebration - further details will be put on our website, and that of the RSCM, in due course;
4 Bible Society will be including the celebration in their material for Bible Sunday;
5 A Bible-reading marathon, or just the New Testament. Further information will be available on this website in due course.
A number of projects are being worked on including:
1 Peterborough Diocese - The Shoe Box Bible:
The recreation of the bible in sections prepared as three dimensional interpretations in standard shoe boxes. - Schools, parishes or individuals would be asked to prepare an interpretation of text taken from bible. This could be a literal presentation of a scene in a story or an interpretation of ideas rendered using a range of materials.
Details of more projects will be available on this website as soon as possible.
