2016 - Role and Ritual in Worship


The theme of the Society's conference in 2016 was Ritual and Role in Worship.


The theme permitted a wide-ranging exploration of aspects of ritual and role, such as verbal and non-verbal communication action, text, gesture and choreography as well as art and architecture and other aspects of ritual context and setting.  Our keynote speaker, the late Bishop Michael Perham, spoke on the subject of ‘The Bishop in the Liturgy’.
