This course is designed to introduce you to the nature and practice of Christian worship, liturgy, and sacramental theology. After these subjects are introduced, the class will use its understanding of these subjects as a foundation for looking at the history, theology and practice of baptism, the Eucharist, and other services used in Anglican parishes, particularly in light of the Book of Common Prayer tradition. Attention will also be given to the pastoral issues surrounding the administration of the sacraments and pastoral services within the local parish. The course will give an overview of the polity and ethos of Anglicanism.
Class time for this course will be divided between asynchronous pre-recorded lectures and Live Zoom tutorials every week. Prior to the first tutorial, students should view recorded lectures for the week (available on Moodle) and complete the assigned readings.
Tutorials will take place on Thursdays at 1pm Pacific Time. Students who cannot participate due to their time zone will have access to recordings of the tutorials for one week. Please notify the instructor at the beginning of the course if you are unable to participate in these.
