About the Event

This course will be of interest to those who wish to explore the possibility of leading worship in their local church setting. It will focus on the history, theology and structure of worship services in a variety of styles, in order to ground current practice in its wider context. All the components of a church service will be considered in theory and from a practical perspective. Participants will have opportunities to prepare and deliver prayers, children’s talks and sermons, and to construct meaningful orders of service.

Classes will take place 13 January – 3 April 2020.

The course will be piloted in 2020. Students who take part in the pilot will not be assessed.

Entry is open to all. Participants are likely to be active in their local Church.

The courses will be run in partnership with the Mission and Discipleship Council of the Church of Scotland, the Presbyteries of Edinburgh and Lothian, and the Scottish Episcopal Institute. They will be led by experienced academics and practitioners.

Each course will involve six evening classes and two Saturday afternoon classes.
