Reflections on Holy Communion 7

"And nothing shall be proclaimed or published in the Church during the time of Divine Service, but by the minister: nor by him any thing but what is prescribed in the Rules of this Book, or enjoined by the Queen, or by the Ordinary of this place"

Sometimes at my church, the announcements can go for 20 minutes, occasionally 30.

I guess it is important that people know what is going on through the week.
Still, announcements generally take up more time than prayer.
Is it possible we have got our priorities the wrong way around?
