I'm emailing to let you know about the next BIAPT local group meeting and other opportunities coming up — all of which are taking place virtually.
It's great to welcome Revd Al Lowe to present a paper for our local BIAPT group based on his PhD research at the University of Manchester. His title is: A Critique of Discipleship Within Fresh Expression Literature: does discipleship reach those who do not go to church?
Date and Times: 24th June, 2.00pm — 3:15pm.
Please see the with the registration details — when you register you will get a Zoom link for the event.
I have also attached a this year — which is a conversation with missionaries and ex-missionaries on the changing face of mission. You would be very welcome to join that event- again there are registration details on the flyer attached.
I will soon be sending around information about the Syndey Martin lecture this year which is being given by Revd Dr Dulcie McKenzie, leader of the Black Theology Centre at Queens. So look out for that flyer too!
