‘Untangling the legacies of slavery: Deconstructing Mission Christianity for our contemporary Kerygma’

This lecture, built upon research undertaken for the Council for World Mission’s ‘Legacies of Slavery’ project, will outline the necessity of deconstructing the problematic history of Christian mission and its relationship to slavery and colonialism, in order to effect a more prophetic and radical proclamation of the Christian faith in contemporary Britain.

The Centre for Theology and Justice is delighted to welcome Anthony Reddie to give our annual David Goodbourn Lecture. Anthony is Director of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture, and a leading scholar in the practice of Black theology with grassroots communities. The significance of his writings and research is recognised internationally.

David Goodbourn, who the annual lecture honours, was General Secretary of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, and President of Luther King House, Manchester.

There is no charge for this event, but booking is essential. Details on how to register and receive joining instructions will be made available soon.

The lecture will take place online, and will begin at 7.30pm, finishing at approximately 9pm.

A pdf leaflet for you to download, print and distribute will be linked in as soon as possible.

For further details, please contact Luther King House by e-mail.

The Centre for Theology and Justice brings together a number of organisations involved in justice issues, including Luther King House, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Church Action on Poverty, and Christian Aid.
