My Heart Strangely Warmed

Saturday, 20th May 2017, 10.00am - 5.15pm
Moravian Church and School, Fulneck, Pudsey, Leeds, LS28 8NT

The Lutheran, Moravian and Methodist Churches are pleased to invite you to join us for a day of music, workshops, academic discussion and worship.

The theme of the day has a special focus on music, particularly hymnody. Congregational singing has been an important part of most churches as a vehicle to develop spirituality, convey theology, and of course as a deep and moving form of communal worship.

People of all or no faith are invited to join us to explore these and other developments and influences through plenary lectures, interactive workshops, and academic papers. More details will be available in spring 2017 when you will be able to express your preference regarding which workshops and papers you wish to attend.
