wWBOX: Where Three Streams Meet

18 September 2017 - 20 September 2017

blue, white & black flow lines meeting in the centre

Danish / Scottish conversations on Liturgy

Monday 18 – Wednesday 20 September 2017

Denmark is a predominantly Lutheran nation, Scotland, a predominantly Calvinist one, in terms of their respective Christian heritage. There are distinctive spiritual streams, but each in practice, incorporates other significant influences.

So in this year, marking 500 years since the Reformation, a group of Danes are coming – not as invaders, but ecumenical partners – to discuss with people from the various Scottish churches matters pertaining to Church Music, Scripture and the practice of Baptism.

You are warmly invited to be part of this unique event. We hope it might interest you. Please see the full Programme & Timings below.

The Conference will be led by John Bell, Jo Love and Graham Maule of the Wild Goose Resource Group; aided by Tine Illum, Søren Andresen and Janne Mark, liturgists, activists and musicians from the Danish Lutheran Church; and Kelvin Holdsworth, provost of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow.

Three Streams will be held in The Ground, the event space of the Iona Community’s Glasgow

Base at 21 Carlton Court, Glasgow G5 9JP (a 5 minute walk from Central Station; and a 2 minute walk from Bridge Street Underground).

Participants can come for one, two or all three days. Lunch will be provided on Monday & Tuesday. Evening events/ entertainments are free to daily participants; they are open to those not attending during the day and tickets are available on the door.
