Event description

Description

October’s Worship Academy is led by Rev. Dr David M. Chapman, Chair of the Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire District of the Methodist Church. He is a member of the Methodist Faith and Order Committee and Co-Chair of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the World Methodist Council and the Roman Catholic Church. He is the author of three books and numerous theological articles in academic journals.

‘Worship and Sacred Space’ is an illustrated presentation on how a theology of worship is reflected in church architecture and attitudes to the places in which Christians worship. Why do some regard the setting of worship as ‘sacred space’ and how does this influence our approach to worship?

A reminder that Worship Academy is open to all leaders of worship. That is our Local Preachers (for whom it counts in their commitment to CLPD – Continuous Local Preacher’s Development), all our Worship Leaders, all our Ministers and anyone else who is considering becoming Local Preachers or Worship Leaders in the future. If there are people you want to invite as a way of helping them think in that direction, they are welcome too. All we ask is that everyone who comes is booked in.

Just a reminder of our timings:

7:00pm - Arrive and eat and have fellowship over food, tea & coffee with other Worship Leaders, Local Preachers and Ministers

8:00pm - Worship

8:15pm-9:15pm – Sessions (these may overrun slightly but we aim to be out of the building by 9:30pm)

Donations for the Meal and Future speakers will be accepted at the door.
