New Church Day Picnic

June 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

NEW CHURCH DAY PICNIC AND PAGEANT

Picnic at 6:00 pm 
Bring a picnic and join us on the Cathedral lawn. Free ice cream will be available to all attendees (1 per person).
Pageant at 7:30 pm
The New Church Day pageant will take place on the East lawn of the Cathedral grounds. If you’d like to sit and watch the pageant, please bring a blanket or chair.

What if it rains?
Plans for inclement weather will be announced the day before based on the forecast. For updates, visit the New Church Day 2024 webpage or the Friends of Bryn Athyn Church Facebook page (request to join required).

Offertory
This is a worship service so there will be an offertory bowl which will go toward supporting the pageant.
Road Closure
To maintain a reverent sphere during the pageant and also for the safety of walkers, the Bryn Athyn Police will be closing a section of Cathedral Road between 5:30 & 9 pm. As you turn onto Cathedral Road, you may enter the large lot on the right to circumvent the closure.  All parking lots will be accessible.
Cathedral Lighting and Music
The Cathedral will be lit and there will be music playing from 8:15-10:15 pm.

GIFTS – please visit the New Church Day 2024 webpage for more details.

Using the Calendar

It Will Display Differently on Your Phone

Some of the features of this calendar only work when viewing on a bigger screen. If you’re on a phone, look for these icons to search and change your view.

When you tap on the magnifying glass, a search box will appear below the color-coded categories. Use the icon on the right to change between month and list views. List view is recommended for mobile use.

 

The Reset Calendar Button Is Your Friend

If the calendar is behaving strangely, start over again by clicking Reset Calendar. It’s at the end of the color-coded categories.

 

Click on an Event for More Information

Many events have more details than will display at first. On a computer you can hold your mouse over an event title to see a summary of the description. On a computer or a phone, if you click the title of the event it will display more information, often including links to the full details for the event – the location, the cost of the event, where to buy tickets, etc.

 

Search

There’s a search box that you can use to search for when specific events are (e.g. you could search for Community Worship to know when the next Community Worship services are). It doesn’t work to search for a specific date to see what’s happening on that date. After you search, make sure that you’re in List View to see events from more than the current month.

 

Go to a Specific Date

To jump to a specific date, click the ⌄ next to today’s date and select the date or month you want to go to.

 

See Only Events from Certain Calendars

If you click one of the color-coded category labels, it will show you only events for that institution. (You may want to switch to List view to see events for more than the current month.)

On the left-hand side, under Filters, click the + next to Select Calendars to View and then click the checkboxes for which institutions you would like to see events from. This doesn’t seem to be working in mobile view at the moment.

 

Other Notes

This is kind of clunky

Yup. This calendar isn’t as good-looking or user-friendly as it could be but we decided to make it available to you anyway, before we have all the bugs worked out. If you might be able to help make it work better, please get in touch (malcolm.smith@brynathynchurch.org).

 

Want to Add Something to the Calendar?

Before you contact us to add something to the calendar, please read these notes:

  • This calendar is for events happening in the 19009 zip code and generally for events at least somewhat associated with the Bryn Athyn Church or General Church.
  • This calendar is for events that are relevant to a large group of people. We are not, for example, including the complete ANC Secondary Schools and Bryn Athyn College athletics calendars in this community calendar because all of those games would not be relevant to a large enough group of people. (You can, however, find links to those calendars below.)
  • We reserve the right to remove your event or not add your event to the calendar.
  • Rather than adding your events manually we would prefer you to set up a digital calendar and then send us the feed from it so that we can add your events automatically.

More questions? Get in touch with Malcolm (malcolm.smith@brynathynchurch.org)
