‘RE-VISITING MISSION’ -The power of a second look

Is what we don’t notice about ourselves affecting our mission?

This day-conference will open up dynamic new horizons for mission. Looking at both context and culture we will discuss the challenges and opportunities they present for mission. Our speakers (Dr Anthony Reddie, Rev. Dr. Rosalind Murphy and Rev. Israel Olofinjana ) are inspirational experts in this field and will stir us to thoughtful action. ‘Re-Visiting Mission’ will be a worshipful time for interaction and encouragement with other church leaders. These are some of the questions that will be addresses:

Why don’t White people go to Black-led churches?
Why do some Black people go to White-led churches?
What is Black theology?
Is there such a thing as White theology?
How is our common mission affected by these questions?
How can Black and White Churches work in partnership in mission?
