Day Conference on Friday 12 November 10.30am – 4.00pm

Following on from three online lectures with leading guest speakers in the field, a day conference will be held with papers from established and emerging thinkers.

In a world marked by the pain of racial discrimination and the anger of racial injustice, the church needs leaders shaped by the radical inclusivity of God. How is this possible when much of the church’s culture and history is arguably shaped by colonialism and so much of our ministerial formation remains influenced by colonialist thinking? The Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture and Ripon College Cuddesdon are hosting a series of events to engage with this question.

Keynote speakers:

Prof. Anthony Reddie, Director of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture, Editor of Black Theology: An International Journal.

Canon Prof. Mark Chapman, Vice-Principal, Ripon College Cuddesdon, and Professor of the History of Modern Theology, University of Oxford.
