Mission and lament (and joy)

The joint CTE/BIAPT Mission Studies Day 2022 takes place in person on 12 May.

This year’s Mission Studies Day takes place in person after a two year hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic. The event organised jointly by Mission Studies Special interest Group of the British and Irish Association for Practical Theology and CTE’s Mission Research Network will take place at the Queens Foundation, Birmingham on 12 May. It is open to missiologists and theologians of all kinds from across the spectrum of traditions.

This year we are delighted to welcome the USPG Global Theologian Rev Canon Dr Peniel Rajkumar, who will speak on the topic of Mission and Lament. Peniel has been in post for about nine months formerly working with the World Council of Churches in Geneva for 9 years. He brings particular interests around mission at the margins, Dalit theology and World Christianity.

We are thrilled he will be joined by Dr Eve Parker an Anglican Feminist theologian working with Common Awards at Durham University, who will give a response.

The day runs from 10am – 3pm and lunch is included. Please book via [email protected] to attend.

There are opportunities to present a short paper in the afternoon if you are a doctoral candidate or have a particular interest in the topic. For more information contact CTE’s Principal Officer for Mission and Evangelism, Rev Dr Ben Aldous.
