Living Mission Interculturally: Mission Studies Special Interest Group day conference

May 14, 2019 10:15 am - 4:00 pm

BIAPT Mission Studies Special Interest Group is hosting a day conference on Tuesday 14th May in association with The Queen’s Foundation, Birmingham.

If mission is crossing boundaries then we need to take account of the turn to the intercultural in thinking about mission. We are privileged to have with us Anthony Gittins, author of a book of the same title as our conference (Liturgical Press, 2015). He is insistent we move from mono-cultural approaches to mission through the multicultural to the intercultural – especially when forming and re-forming Christian community around God’s mission today. Anthony is the Emeritus Professor of Theology and Culture at the Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, USA.

Our respondent for the day is Sharon Prentis who is the Intercultural Mission Enabler for the Anglican Diocese of Birmingham, UK.

Call for papers on the conference theme: In the afternoon of our time together there will be an opportunity for delegates to share their own practice or research in the subject area of the day. Short proposals should be sent to Nigel Rooms, Convenor of the BIAPT Mission Studies SIG at nigel.rooms@churchmissionsociety.org by 8th March 2019 (decision on acceptance by 15.3.19).

The cost of the day is £40 which will include refreshments at the start and end of the day and a hot lunch. There is an opportunity for a few delegates to stay overnight at the Queen’s Foundation before or after the conference. Please contact hospitality@queens.ac.uk for a price and booking.
