About this Event

Women's Response to Power.

New Testament Church of God, England & Wales, embarked on the third series of the Oliver Lyseight Annual Lecture in 2018 under the banner of ‘Womanhood in Christian Faith Communities.’ These lectures are delivered in commemoration of our founding Administrative Bishop, Rev Dr. Oliver Lyseight. This series focuses on the contribution women continue to make to the life and witness of the Church, even in the face of barriers such as unconscious bias and resistance to their input in its fullness.

The five lectures provide opportunities for our denomination to critically reflect on the treatment and experience of women in our polity and draw on Scripture to inform and enhance our corporate pastoral care, empower our women to serve the Church in their God-given gifting and augment our engagement and influence in the wider society.

Each lecturer speaks from their experience, their theological proficiency, their commitment to Christian discipleship, and their hope for a better future.
