2018 Wesley Memorial Lecture - 12th July 2018

How can heritage be a tool for mission?

The Wesley Memorial Annual Lecture, 7.30pm Thursday 12 July

A conversation between Helen Ghosh and Carole Souter, former Chief Executives of the National Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Churches in Britain today have a daunting mission – to spread the good news and the challenge of Jesus to a secular society. At the same time, we have a long heritage. Could we use our heritage to say something about the love of Jesus in a way that non-Christians would find intriguing and attractive, rather than aggressive or off-putting or peculiar? 

Helen Ghosh and Carole Souter are ideally placed to discuss this. Helen Ghosh is a Catholic, until recently chief executive of the National Trust, and now Master of Balliol College. Carole Souter is  a lay canon of Salisbury cathedral, the former chief executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, and Master of St Cross College.

The meeting will be chaired by Rev. Gareth Powell, the Secretary of the Methodist Conference.

Wesley Memorial Church, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford

Refreshments will be available from 7pm.

The lecture is free and un-ticketed. Please click here for flyer
