Well, if they didn't think much about it, that's on them.

From the start I didn't like the idea of inviting someone that has no relation at all to the couple but apparently they were fine with it, so if they weren't as pleased afterwards (which we don't know) that shows a lack of interest/preparation on their end.

From Merriam Webster--Definition of quire-archaic spelling of choir

The Quire at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor – Royal Central


ETA-As someone else said, it was used in most of the articles written about the wedding.

I’ve been to many churches, and attended many weddings. For the most part the sermons were quite trite and monotonous. The C of E’s membership and attendance has been in decline for years. Perhaps something different is required?

if that's what the parishioners want... there are C of E churches where that sort of preaching Is appreciated. But IMO "something differnet" like the Bishop's preaching would only drive away people...

One thing I think we can all agree on and it pretty much can't be refuted is that Archbishop Curry's preaching didn't affect any of the congregation to think it was a good time for a power nap. Regardless of what thoughts ran through people's heads, they all paid attention.

You're correct, but whoever it was they were amazing. I had tears in my eyes; the cellist and the woman singing as Meghan walked down the aisle were the best parts.

I doubt if they were actually listening or taking much heed of the thoughts of the sermon, just irritated by the noisiness or the length of it.

This isn’t the 19th century.
Prince Harry's holding of Meghan's hand could symbolize that he was to be her provider. He would be in charge. He would be her support.

I think they held hands because they are in love and were happy to be getting married.

The bolded part of your statement actually is very antiquated. And I would hope they support each other.

Yes, well, that is your opinion. But the regular preaching of the C of E seems to be driving them away...

Actually, churches all over have seen declines in attendance. People just don't go to church like they used to.

"The number of people attending Church of England services each week has for the first time dropped below 1 million – accounting for less than 2% of the population – with Sunday attendances falling to 760,000."

I doubt if its because of the preaching.. Personally I don't go to church for the sermon and if I found myself at a church where the style was like taht of Bishop Curry it WOULD probably drive me away

OK. That makes sense. Variety, I guess, is the spice of life and there's no one size fits all when it comes to this kind of thing.

As Im suere you know, the C of E is a broad church, and there are different wings, with different styles of service and Preaching..

To be honest, I don't know that much about the Church of England except from what I've learned here. I'm not a church goer at all.
