Have you ever wondered how your life of prayer relates to what we do in church? If so, this engaging new MA-level Taster Term gives you the chance to search out the answer for yourself.
As part of this Taster Term, you will explore what it means to be an embodied worshipper, investigating the ways in which corporate worship provides the language for our private prayer.
Together with your fellow students, you will reflect on how worship can engage all the senses, and – in a more theological key – examine the role of the Spirit in animating our worship. Finally, you will be called to look at how our very identity as Christians is formed when we gather with others for worship.
You will attend classes with fellow students at our West Malling campus in rural Kent, joining students and staff for morning worship before engaging in the day’s classes. This taster term is taught by St Augustine’s Honourary Teaching Fellow, Canon Chris Irvine.
