Reclaiming Evangelism: Positive Liberal Theologies of Mission day conference

Questions.jpg

This day will help us to think about both theoretical and practical aspects of what it is to do evangelism as liberals.

We'll consider what liberal theologies of evangelism might look like, and practically, how as liberals we go about evangelism.

Speakers include:

  • Martyn Percy on building the Kingdom of God

  • Emma Percy on living fit for heaven

  • Jonathan Draper on the 5 Marks of Mission

  • Miranda Threlfall-Holmes on historical and biblical metaphors for mission

Some of the questions we've been asking are:

  • Why do evangelism if we don't believe people will go to hell?

  • Does it matter whether people are Christian or not?

  • What about other faiths?

  • How do we evangelise in a culture that is inherently suspicious of truth claims?

  • Is Christianity a 'toxic brand'?

  • What is the 'good news' for liberals?

  • What might evangelism look like in a Post-evangelical culture?

The day will open with registration 9.30-10.00am and the conference will take place from 10am-4pm. A buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day will be provided.
