Singing the Psalms in the 21st Century
Our worshiping tradition has had the psalms at its core for millennia. What value do these ancient songs have today as part of lifelong spiritual formation and how might we sing them today? Come for study, reflection and community singing in a variety of styles.
Clergy and laity will be together with Richard throughout the day.
