Centre for Black Theology

Share Icon

The Centre for Black Theology was launched on the 1st December 2018 with the aim to be a centre of excellence in theological education for leaders and members of Black Majority Churches who want progressive and rigorous theology shaped through the liberative traditions of Black Theology.

The Centre is led by Dr Dulcie Dixon McKenzie and supported by Professor Robert Beckford, who is an international research consultant of the Queen’s Foundation.

The centre has three core activities:

  • To provide opportunities for high quality learning. Central to this is a new MA programme focused on Black Theology. Currently 26 people are enrolled in the first module and we are now receiving enquiries for admissions for October 2019. The programme is innovative and accessible, allowing part time students to access learning from across the UK. In addition, to encourage those beginning theological study the Centre offers a short and accessible taster course.
  • To foster theological dialogue amongst members and leaders of Black Majority Churches and with other Black theologians and leaders of other churches. The Black Theology Forum meets every month at Queen’s and offers a stimulating and varied programme.
  • Widening and deepening scholarship and research amongst Black theologians. With four Black members of academic staff at Queen’s who are qualified to supervise PhD students, and a wider team of research scholars, the Centre can offer full and part time doctoral degrees in partnership with a theology faculty rated in the top 5 in the world.
