Content

Spirituality for Presiding is designed to nurture leadership in Christian celebration: exploring kinaesthetic and other arts employed in liturgical assembly, and encouraging reflection on the pastoral, public and representative vocation of the one who presides. The unit will foster and promote perspectives of ecumenical liturgical renewal, at once grounded in the academic discipline of liturgical theology and concerned with the missional vocation of the church. Special attention will be given to Anglican contexts of worship, and a significant proportion of the unit will be given to embodied and enacted liturgical practice.
