Students who have applied for and been selected as student worship coordinators on the Emmanuel College Worship Team may register for this course as an associated reflexive practicum in worship planning and liturgical leadership, based on their work with the Worship Team. Working with the other student members of the Worship Team, the Director of Chapel, and the Faculty Advisor to the Worship Team, students will engage in collaborative oversight, planning, leadership and evaluation of Tuesday and Thursday Midday Prayer services, Wednesday services of worship, and other occasional services, using United Church of Canada, ecumenical, intercultural and interfaith liturgical and music resources. Students will learn ways to support, resource and animate the Emmanuel College community of faculty and students, guest preachers and presiders, in the worship life of the College. Students will take primary leadership responsibility for several worship services each academic year, including the work of facilitating collaborative worship planning, communications, liturgical creation and design, liturgy/prayer writing, bulletin and/or projection production, celebration of sacraments, preparation of liturgical space, liturgical leadership, evaluation and feedback.
