Advance Notification of A Study Day
for Preachers and Leaders of Worship 

The study day will be led by The Rev Dr Kate Bruce Deputy Warden,
  Tutor in Homiletics and CODEC Research Fellow in Preaching, Cranmer College, Durham

On Saturday 27 January 2018 at Whittington Moor Methodist Church, Chesterfield 

Details of the day remain to be agreed with Dr Bruce, but the invitation was inspired a review of her recent book, Igniting the Heart: Preaching and Imagination:

“It has been said that the day of the sermon is over. Kate Bruce argues that the day of the poorly conceived, ill prepared, dull, disconnected, boring, irrelevant, authoritarian, yawn-inducing, patronizing, pontificating, pointless and badly delivered sermon, is indeed over. Imagination can help to engage the hearer in a sermon which seeks to evoke rather than to inform.”
