Pastoral Care Summer School
The Luther King House Summer School from  30th June to 4th July 2008 provides an opportunity to work with Revd Dr Jan Berry and other participants on the theme of  Pastoral Liturgy.

This course looks at the way in which our liturgy can respond to human story in a way that is pastorally sensitive, and set it in the framework of faith and liturgy. It will draw on participants’ own experience in creating liturgy, and encourage discussion of case studies and scenarios from their pastoral practice.

Fee levels have been deliberately tied at a price to make this course as accessible to as many people as possible. 
Residential                    £275       
Non-Residential           £180      (includes lunch)
