Stephen Roberts is an academic theologian, Anglican priest and amateur musician based in Cardiff. He worked as a parish priest and university chaplain in London before moving into theological education (St Michael’s College, Llandaff) and then academic theology (University of Chichester). He is now Tutor in Practical Theology and Mission at Cardiff Baptist College and Honorary Lecturer at Cardiff University. Rooted in the inter-related disciplines of practical and public theology, he has particular interests in chaplaincy, inter-faith relations, liturgy, and the relationship between music and theology. He has published in each of these areas, including co-editing with June Boyce-Tillman and contributing to Enlivening Faith: Music, Spirituality and Christian Theology(Oxford: Peter Lang, 2019). He performs regularly with the Cardiff-based community big band, Wonderbrass.
‘Music and the Spiritual Journey - A soundtrack for the pilgrimage of faith’.
‘Music can touch as at the deepest levels of our being, connecting us in profound ways with others, with ourselves and with God. Using a wide range of styles – such as classical, jazz, folk, pop and rap - this workshop explores some of the ways in which we can use music to nourish, sustain and guide us on the spiritual journey.’
The maximum number of participants in each workshop is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!
