USPG’s second one day Rethinking Mission Conference – entitled ‘Living in a Religiously Diverse World’ – will be held on Saturday 17 March 2018, from 9.30am to 3pm, at Birmingham Cathedral.
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.
Each will give a presentation looking at the theme from their own context; there will be group discussion and a plenary as we 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.
The day will be inspiring, informative and participative. The speakers will be:
- 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.
There will be a small cost of £10 per participant; this is reduced to £5 for ordinands, lay ministers in training and those in their first three years of ministry, and their partners. This cost includes lunch.
You can book online here.
