Intercultural Worship

Date        15 - 18 April 2024
Location  On campus

The aim of this course is to deepen participants understanding of both the theory and practice of intercultural worship. The course will draw specifically on the discipline of ‘Ethnodoxology’ and will enable participants to analyze, critique and apply creative and relevant models for arts and worship practice. Participants will be given practical opportunities to explore worship, arts and liturgy from a variety of cultural backgrounds and examine how local art forms can be used to shape liturgy and worship for intercultural settings.

Those accessing Advanced Short Courses will be provided with relevant reading materials and other information to enable their full participation in the course.

ASC participants are not required to complete an assignment and will receive a certificate of participation on completion of the course.
