We are delighted to be able to hold our annual alumni Conference at the College again after two years of meeting remotely due to the pandemic.
Our incoming Conference President, Philip Lutterodt, has developed an engaging programme of sessions with his chosen guest speakers. The theme is: Perspectives from Contemporary Global South Christianity in Dialogue with Global North Christianity
The demographic of Christianity continues to shift from the Global North (Europe, North America) to the Global South (Africa, Asia, Latin America, Caribbean). Christianity in the Global South is growing both qualitatively and quantitatively at a phenomenal pace in comparison to Global North Christianity. What are the key attributes of some of the varieties of Global South Christianity? What lessons can Global North Christianity — notably UK Christianity — learn from some of the varieties of Global South Christianity?
The conference will examine a few essential characteristics and practices of Christianity in Ghana, Singapore, and Brazil and encourage participants to dialogue on their relevance or otherwise to UK Christianity.
The event will be held in the College’s Chapel with refreshments served in the main building.
Tickets are priced at £20 per person and include lunch and refreshments.
Conference is a great opportunity to come and fellowship with former students from across the years. We do want to encourage people to join us in person, but we will also be offering a live-stream option for those who are unable to do so. You will need to register in advance to receive the link for the live-stream. There is no cost for this, but we will be asking people to donate to our student fund if they can.
Please email Katie Jack to register your interest in the live-stream.
