TRIBUTE: Lynda Patterson (1974-2014)
Theology House acknowledges the death of the Very Reverend Lynda Patterson, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Christchurch NZ and former Director of Theology House (2006-2008). Lynda was just 40, taken too soon through death after a brief illness on Sunday 20 July 2014. Our human sorrow is matched by our shared hope with her in the resurrection through Jesus Christ. Lynda was the second Director of Theology House and continued in recent years to serve Theology House through her work with the current director as they jointly authored a series of Lenten studies.

Ways With Words – A Voice Workshop with Jayne Oakshott (UK)
We all know in our heads how our words should sound. But they don’t always come out that way. Clarity can become rant, sincerity can turn into mumble, emotional heights can descend into artifice. This practical, interactive workshop explores ways in which we can thoroughly engage our audience and deliver emotional truth through closely acknowledging, respecting and loving the words as the centre of our performance.
Tutor: Jayne Oakshott is an experienced teacher of voice who has worked with many ordained and lay ministers in the Church of England.
Date/time: 10 am – 12 noon Thursday 25 September 2014
Venue: St James Hall & Church, Harewood Rd (near Johns Rd)
Who for? Clergy, lay worship leaders and preachers, Scripture readers.
Cost: $20 First Sixteen registrations will be accepted.
Register: with Les Brighton 03 3413399 or email@example.com as soon as possible, at latest by 23rd September.
