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.
