In Search of the Presence of God: How We Meet God in Worship

What is the presence of God? How do we come to know it? Is it possible to make sense of our experience in a way that honours both God and science? Mark Powley will share the fruits of ten years of PhD research on the presence of God in worship. There will be an opportunity to consider the ‘signs of God’ in our own lives. The session will also look at how we as human beings enable and shape experiences of God’s presence. Ultimately the presence of God is not the experience of a thing, but a rich process of partnership in which each of us plays a role. As we regather after lockdown, this may help us be more aware of how we need each other if we are to seek Gods face.
