USPG’s second one day Conference is entitled ‘Rethinking Mission: Living in a Religiously Diverse World’
Saturday 17th March 2018, 9.30am – 3pm, Birmingham Cathedral (St Philip’s)
Speakers from around the world will inspire, challenge and enthuse us as together we reflect on how we live and engage in mission in religiously diverse situations. The day aims to be inspiring, informative and participative, and includes the following speakers:
- The Very Revd Canon Hosam Naoum, Dean of St George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem and Secretary of the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem
- Deaconess Yit Ching Li, Deaconess in the Diocese of West Malaysia, Anglican Province of South East Asia
- The Revd Christine Benoit, First woman ordained in the Diocese of Seychelles, Anglican Province of the Indian Ocean,
- Richard Reddie, Theologian, researcher and author, UK
Each will present from their own context; there will be group discussion and a plenary as they reflect on how mission, dialogue and praxis in the contexts shared may help us in our own understanding as Christian leaders both locally and globally.
Everyone is welcome to attend, and they wish to promote this event particularly amongst Ordinands and Lay Ministers in training, and those recently ordained or licensed; they will gain perspectives from global theologians which will assist in their theological formation. To this end, the cost for Ordinands, Lay Ministers in training and those in their first three years of ministry will be half price, at only £5. For everyone else, the cost is £10, including lunch.
