Centre for Contemporary Spirituality

This Centre offers academic, vocational, personal and devotional opportunities to explore spirituality widely, with courses for continuing ministerial development, and intellectual and professional growth and renewal.

Barnabas Palfrey is Acting Centre Coordinator and programme leader for the MA in Christian Spirituality. His research interests include fundamental theology and continental-philosophical inquiries into Christian spirituality, including hermeneutical philosophy and the psychoanalytic philosophy of Jacques Lacan. He also has a growing interest in pre-modern understandings of embodiment and participatory intuition and their relevance to Christian spirituality and theology today.
