It is now an undeniable fact that, demographically speaking, the centre of gravity of Christianity has shifted to the southern continents from its traditional heartlands in Europe and America. This lecture will look at the need for African, Asian and Latin American cultures to yield their deposits of grace in the service of the Gospel and theology, mine those deposits that God has left in every culture, and use them to create new disciplines that will strengthen the Church.

Luther King House and Baptists Together are to delighted to welcome Joe Kapolyo to speak at the 2019 Whitley Lecture. Joe is the recently retired Lead Minister of Edmonton Baptist Church, London. Previously he has served as Principal of All Nations Christian Church; Principal of Theological College of central Africa (TCCA), Ndola, Zambia; Pastor of Ndola Baptist Church (Zambia); Schools worker with Scripture Union Zambia.

He currently chairs on the Board of Ulting Trust Overseas and, until August 2018, was a member of both the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the BUGB Trustees.

Refreshments from 7pm, followed by the lecture at 7.30pm
