Spirituality, Critical Reflection and Professional Practice in an Uncertain World


Seventh International Conference of the

International Network for the Study of Spirituality

The first BASS (now INSS) conference in 2010 was entitled Spirituality in a Changing World. This was followed, in 2012, by Spirituality in a Fragmented World and, in 2014, by Spirituality in a Challenging World. The sequence of titles points to the direction of global change – and why the 2016 conference asked the question ‘Can Spirituality Transform our World?’. Revisiting those titles as we discussed what might be the most appropriate theme for the 2023 conference, we wanted to hold on to the notion of ‘transformation’ and the role of spirituality within that process, particularly within a world that seems to have changed dramatically since 2010.

2023 Annual Conference – Take off your shoes: Hospitality & Practical Theology


BIAPT, the British & Irish Association for Practical Theology.

Our conference title, Take Off Your Shoes – Hospitality and Practical Theology, allows us to explore a theme that has come under increasing theological scrutiny in recent years. Hospitality is a universal virtue, one that is claimed by every culture, but what does it mean to welcome another into our country, home, space or personal narrative?
