Other articles in this edition reflect the academic contributions to Modern Church’s 2016 conference on Shakespeare and Christian faith. But the conference was no more dryly academic than the Bard himself. Worship was at its heart, and at the heart of worship (and itself bearing a powerful theological message) was the Poetry Mass.
Anthony Woollard, who acted as Secretary to the 2016 Moderbn Church Conference, is a retired civil servant and lay theologian who acts as a trustee of Modern Church and editor of its popular newsletterSigns of the Times.
