World Parish Webinars
Join us online on the first Tuesday of each month for our series of ‘World Parish Webinars’ which bring together scholars and researchers from around the world for a focused time of theological conferring. The overall theme of the webinars is ‘decolonising theology’, and each time we have a presenter who introduces a paper for discussion.
All are welcome to engage with this exciting venture, jointly hosted by Wesley House, the World Methodist Council and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church.
A list of forthcoming webinars can be found on our What’s On page.
Recordings of past webinars can be found below.
