Mission and the Anglican Tradition: A Survey

Mar 15, 2020 by

Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, former Bishop of Rochester and current President of OXTRAD, will be delivering a series of lectures at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies on Mission and the Anglican Tradition. The lectures will begin at 11am and will take place at St Philip and St James Church, Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2 6HR.

Bishop Michael says:

The lectures arise out of a planned series of works on Reformation Anglicanism. The other contributors are Ashley Null, Archbishop Ben Kwashi, and John Yates III. The volume related to these lectures is about Mission and Evangelism in the Anglican Communion, it’s history, issues and prospects.

The lectures will explore the origins of an Anglican understanding of mission, the ways in which the different traditions within Anglicanism have understood and practised it, questions about inculturation and its limits, presence, identification, dialogue, prophetic ministry and social responsibility, intentional evangelism and church planting.

All of the above will be put in the context of mainstream missiological thinking and writing, while asking what, if anything, is distinctive about the Anglican tradition.
