Black Theology Forum at Queen’s Foundation
Chair and convener: Dr Dulcie Dixon McKenzie
The Black Theology Forum (BTF) offers a space for the exploration of Black and Asian liberation theologies through critical conversations on a wide range of topics. It is a monthly gathering that merges scholarship with transformative practice, and anyone who identifies as Black and Asian are welcome to attend. Admission is free, however for planning and catering purposes please register in advance. For more details, please contact Dulcie McKenzie at Queen’s Foundation: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Archbishop Agama will give a presentation, launch his new book and sign copies. His presentation will focus on the relationship between Africa and the Bible as a very ancient one and that non-European Christians and particularly those from Africa have made significant contributions to global Christianity. The suffering of Africa could be seen as a retribution for her contributions, rather than the misinterpreted "curse of Ham". The evening will include the launch of Archbishop Agama’s book, Africa, Christianity and the Bible, Our Global Destiny, which looks at the current and future role of Christians of African heritage here in Britain and around the world.
Archbishop Agama is a Christian leader within the Pentecostal Holiness movement. He is presiding prelate and executive director of the Apostolic Pastoral Congress, a collegiate collective of Pentecostal Bishops and Priests, which is part of the evolving "Convergence Movement" in Pentecostalism. He has published eight books, including various theological perspectives on the relevance of ancient Christianity to modern Pentecostalism, and in particular to the emerging Black and multi-cultural churches. He has been married to Helen for over 34 years and they have children and grandchildren.
