Reformation 500
Sunday 29 October, 10.30am

As the world celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, St Andrew's Cathedral marks this extraordinary day on Reformation Sunday- 29th October- the day the church marks 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis to the Wittenberg church door.

During our 10.30 service the Cathedral Choir of boys and men, and international soloists,
Penelope Mills: soprano, Jonathan Borg, countertenor, Michael Butchard: tenor, and
Christopher Richardson: bass, 
will join with our historical-instrument orchestra in bring JS Bach's monumental celebration cantata no. 80: 'A Mighty Fortress' written for Reformation Sunday itself, with words by Martin Luther.

The sermon will be given by Australia's foremost expert on the Reformation, the Rev. Dr Mark Thompson, Principal of Moore College, Sydney.

A feast for the heart and for the mind, and within the context of our morning service. All welcome!
