My Heart Strangely Warmed
Sat 20 May 2017, 10:00 – 17:15 BST
The Lutheran, Moravian and Methodist Churches are pleased to invite you to join us for a day of music, workshops, academic discussion and worship, on 20th May 2017 at the Moravian Church and School at Fulneck, Pudsey, West Yorkshire.
The theme of the day is “My Heart Strangely Warmed”, with a special focus on music, particularly hymnody. Congregational singing has been an important part of most churches as a vehicle to develop spirituality, convey theology, and of course as a deep and moving form of communal worship. Hymns seep into everyday life, providing catchphrases, film soundtracks (such as “Jerusalem”), and marking special occasions of all sorts. People of all or no faith are invited to join us to explore these and other developments and influences.
The £10 ticket price includes refreshments throughout the day, including lunch.
The programme will include a number of workshops and papers, and participants will be able to choose from the following:
David Bunney ‘Lines in pleasant places’ / Margaret Morey Catherine Winkworth + hymn translation / Walter Riggans ‘And yet strangely cooled’ / James Woolford ‘How do we get people singing again?’ / Clive Barrett ‘Hymnody + war resistance’ / Marylynn Rouse ‘John Newton’ / Jo Cox-Darling ‘The Wind of the Spirit..’ / Grove Choir workshop / Martin Clarke ‘And Can it be’ / Danish choir workshop
Fulneck is within easy reach of Leeds International Airport, and New Pudsey rail station (between Leeds and Bradford). Minibuses may be arranged if required from the station at the beginning and end of the day.
Ticket sales will end on Thursday April 27th at 5pm.
