Christian Congregational Music: Local and Global Perspectives Conference: 4th - 7th August 2015
The Christian Congregational Music conference seeks to bring together world-class scholars and practitioners to explore together the varying cultural, social, and spiritual roles church music plays in the life of various Christian communities around the world. Previous conferences in 2011 and 2013 welcomed scholars from 18 countries on all 6 continents. Through a series of invited talks, roundtable discussions, paper presentations, and documentary film showings, conference participants will examine the multifaceted interaction between local and global dimensions of Christian congregational music by drawing from perspectives across academic disciplines, including musicology and ethnomusicology, theology, anthropology, history, and education.

The day presented recent research into the Church of England's involvement in chaplaincy in a range of settings conducted by the Cardiff Centre for Chaplaincy Studies and the Oxford Centre for Ecclesiology and Practical Theology. The day also provided the opportunity for participants to consider the implications of the research for chaplaincy and for other areas of ministry.
