St John's Public Lectures

Generations Lecture Sept 2017


Favouring the Young and Respecting the Old:

Generations, Church & Mission

On Tuesday 12th September Revd Dr David Hilborn gave a public lecture as part of the Midlands Institute for Children, Youth and Mission (MCYM) Community Week for new students. Joining the 44 students studying youth and community work and contextual ministry were church leaders, youth workers, diocesan officers and others who wanted to know more about this fascinating topic. Building on his early work published in God and the Generations David presented his most recent research in the area and introduced a biblical perspective on generations and looked at the implications for mission. A lively question and answer period followed the lecture and conversations continued over tea and cake. This is the first of a new series of public lectures that we are giving at St John’s and if you missed out on it you can see the text of the talk, the informative handout and a video of the link below.
