Reimagining Church Buildings: Panel Discussion

By Nigel Walter 05 Oct 2020

Church buildings reflect the theology of those who built them. What seems central - is it the altar for sacraments, the pulpit for preaching or the stage for the worship band? Yet our church buildings have a much deeper story to tell and a significant role to play in the communities around them. In this event we reflect theologically on church buildings and explore the opportunities as well as challenges which they bring.

This online panel discussion features architect and Cambridge Paper author, Nigel Walter, Dr Dee Dyas (Director, Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture at the University of York), Bishop John Inge (author of A Christian Theology of Place) and Dr Anne Dawtry (Archdeacon of Halifax).

Modern Spirituality: learning from the poets

This Cambridge Paper offers a brief account of current alternative spiritual practices before asking what it is like to negotiate the tension between the assumptions of secularity and the impulses towards extra-ordinary forms of experience. Some of the richest accounts of modern spirituality come from the 1930s, and this paper examines some of the period’s profoundest poetic explorations of belief.
