About the Black Theology Forum (BTF)

The Centre for Black Theology (CBT) hosts a monthly gathering called the Black Theology Forum (BTF), convened and chaired by its centre director, Dr Dulcie Dixon McKenzie.

The Black Theology Forum is a most important site for the verbal articulation of Black theology in Britain and is recognised as the ‘go to place’ for a monthly encounter of lively, interactive, intellectual, and practical exploration amongst academics, practitioners, and those interested in, or new to Black theology. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the forum will be held online.

Each month a guest speaker leads a conversation by way of a formal presentation and the questions and answers part of the evening always provides an opportunity to explore in more depth, themes and concepts in Black theology. It is always intentionally a constructive critical conversation on a wide range of topics that merges scholarship and transformative practice.

The BTF convenes once a month, usually on the fourth Thursday during term time, and admission is free. Anyone who identifies as Black and Asian is welcome to attend. Refreshments are available before and during the gathering, and there is always a good turnout. It is therefore best to register attendance in advance.
