Reading in St Nicholas Church, to Mark 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible

I was one of many volunteers who took part in the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible by reading a 10 minute slot on Friday at St Nicholas Church in Great Hormead, near Buntingford. There are over 400 slots.

It is important that we should celebrate the first authorised English Bible. The text is beautiful and we should not forget that earlier Bible translators were thought to be heretics and burnt at the stake. It was very atmospheric to be reading this wonderful old Bible in such a historic setting as St Nicholas’s Church.
