Episode 5: Martyn Snow, Israel Olofinjana, and Rosalee Velloso Ewell | Contexts of Mission in the UK

What excites you about mission where you are?

What happens when a Bishop, a Pastor-Theologian, and a Principal take a break from a Redcliffe Trustees meeting? We managed to get these trustees in a room to ask them what’s exciting them about mission in their contexts!

Bishop Martyn Snow

Martyn Snow is Bishop of Leicester and Chair of Redcliffe’s Board of Trustees. In a very multicultural diocese that comprises rural and urban settings, what are the challenges and encouragements for churches engaged in God’s mission?

Israel Olofinjana

Israel Olofinjana is Pastor of Woolwich Central Baptist Church in London and recently joined Redcliffe as a Trustee. He is the founding director of Centre for Missionaries from the Majority World and recently edited the volume, African Voices: Towards African British Theologies. He will also be giving some lectures in our 2018 Summer School module, The Practice of Christian Mission in European Contexts. For Israel’s context, key issues include regeneration, youthwork, wealth and poverty, crime, and housing.

Rosalee Velloso Ewell

Rosalee Velloso Ewell, Redcliffe’s Principal, shares about her own home setting in Birmingham and talks about being ‘neighbours on purpose’ in a diverse community.

Living in the UK or more widely within Europe and wanting to think more about mission in your context? Why not join our Summer School this year where you can meet Israel Olofinjana and explore The Practice of Christian Mission in European Contexts.

Episode 2: Matt Wisbey | Migration, Urbanisation & Multilingualism

It seems like most weeks at least one member of the Redcliffe Faculty team is participating in a gathering of people engaged in mission thinking and practice. One of our aims for the podcast is to hear about these events and capture the mission conversations going on around the world.

In this episode Matt Wisbey, lecturer on our MA in Literacy Programme Development, tells us about a recent Community of Practice event he was involved in. Focused on the theme of ‘Migration, Urbanisation, and Multilingualism’, it was held in Singapore, a place that reflected very well the issues of the conference.

We found it fascinating to learn more about these big themes in mission, and thought Matt’s reflections offered some really helpful examples of good practice for organising successful conferences. The event was also captured using storify, which you can read here: CoP event storify page
