Another four or five cricketers are needed for the Lambeth Conference 'Bishops vs Bishops' match on Sunday afternoon. Organisers will follow the same criteria for inclusion in the team as the England selectors--that is, no previous experience necessary (though it would clearly help). For sign-ups or further information, contact the organisers, The Church Times, on 453916 or 0171 359 4570, or via the press centre; or you can contact one of the captains, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali (Rochester, England). The match will begin at 1.45pm on the university cricket ground. Special note: Lord Runcie has agreed to take a spell as umpire.
For 'Crowning Glory': For tomorrow's rehearsals, all Courtiers, Jigsaw People, and Gossips (ANGLICANS ONLINE note: ??) are asked to assemble at 8pm in the Hexagons. Cast rosters will be posted tomorrow morning on the message board of the Home Tent.
Scotland Primus Richard Holloway and Jean Holloway have invited Lambeth bishops and their spouses to a reception profiling the work of the Lesbian/Gay Christians organisation this evening, 7.30-9.30pm at the County Hotel, High Street.
Grant-making for East African dioceses is the topic for a reception tomorrow at 8.30pm in the Rutherford Junior Common Room. Hosts include the African Palms, Companions for World Mission, and the Diocese of Washington (DC).
Have you a story to tell? How has your diocese explored and lived any of the Five Masks of Mission in the decade since the last Lambeth Conference? If so, please come to the Partnership for World Mission stand in the Market Place and write down in its special book your story, prayer or other word of encouragement. PWM's aim is to collect 500 stories.
Copies of this week's Church Times should be available today from the university shops at Park Wood Courts and in Darwin, Eliot and Rutherford colleges.
