Christ Church Oxford has long had issues with time. Because they apparently don’t believe in time zones, official Christ Church time is 5 minutes slower than Greenwich Mean Time.
But this evening they really did it. Their music list had Evensong starting today at 5pm (Christ Church time). But that was in error; it started at 6pm. People who came for the non-existent 5pm service were turned away at the gate (although invited to come back in an hour), and my schedule was thrown off for sure. I adapted but could not make Evensong.
I hope the choir is being run better than that. Perhaps the Dean, Martyn Percy, should pay more attention to his knitting rather than blackballing the orthodox.
