An Address to the Annual General Meeting of the Society by the Reverend John K S Reid, MA, BD, DD, Professor of Theology in the University of Leeds

Professor Reid examines whether a richer meaning of the phrase, ‘In Remembrance of Me’, is to be found in the Eucharistic rite. Under a series of sub-headings, he attempts to do just that:

delimitation of the field;
the element of remembrance in Passover;
the character of remembrance;
practical corollaries

He concludes by discussing the place of sacrifice in the Eucharist and asks whether the Eucharist is a memorial of Christ’s sacrifice or an offering of Christ or of his sacrifice, arguing that the matter is a restatement of one of the fundamental issues at the Reformation.

The Rev John A Lamb, BD, Ph D, Librarian at New College, the University of Edinburgh

Dr Lamb argues that unity is one of the most urgent problems facing the Church and he attempts to look at the relation between liturgy and unity which he believes has been somewhat neglected and should be studied more widely and deeply. Does the worship of the Church suggest or express its unity? Can liturgy help towards unity?, he asks. He tries to answer these questions in the light of biblical criticism, ecclesiastical history and in varying types of worship – Roman, Anglican and Presbyterian. He concludes by stating that unity is grounded in the unity of God and in the uniqueness of the incarnation and that the church is one church, whatever appearances may suggest, because Christ is one for the Church and because the only true life of the Church is that which it has in him. When church people get caught up in worship and the Eucharist, they lose their isolation as they form ‘the one Bread in Christ’.

The Presidential Address to the Society by the Reverend Principal John H S Burleigh, MA, B Litt, DD, New College, University of Edinburgh

The Presidential Address to the Society by the Reverend Principal John H S Burleigh, MA, B Litt, DD, New College, University of Edinburgh

A transcript of the Presidential Address to the Church Service Society at its Annual Meeting in New College, Edinburgh on 23 May 1958, Burleigh begins by discussing Gregory Dix’s book, The Shape of the Liturgy. He then moves on to look at the Reformation and the battle as he describes it, between Anglicanism and Calvinism fought out in the face of threatening Romanism. It is a common feature of all the Reformed churches that their foundation is a Confession of Faith, containing the doctrine to be taught or preached to the people both in sermon and in sacrament and he highlights the difficulties of the conjunction between Word and Sacraments, He discusses the place given to the congregation in the Reformed tradition.
