Burns Lectures with Cathy Ross.

Another world is possible: Mission as an adventure of the imagination.

Canon Dr Cathy Ross will help us catch a glimpse of what this new world might (and does) look like, and how we can contribute towards its coming.

Cathy is originally from Aotearoa New Zealand, and has worked in Rwanda, Congo and Uganda with NZCMS, and is now based in Oxford, UK where she is Head of Pioneer Leadership Training (CMS) and Lecturer in Mission (Regent’s Park College). She has written and co-authored several books and articles on mission, and her research interests are in the areas of contextual theologies, World Christianity, feminist theologies and hospitality.
