The 58th Annual Church of Ireland Theological Lecture at Queen’s University, Belfast took place in the Great Hall at QUB last night, Monday 16th February 2015. In order to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Chaplaincy Centre at Queen’s, the event departed from the normal pattern of hearing from one guest lecturer but instead heard from four leading Church figures from the Church of Ireland, the Methodist, the Presbyterian and the Roman Catholic Churches in Ireland, each addressing the subject of The Mission of the Church in Northern Ireland in 2015: Obstacles and Opportunities.
Following a welcome from the Bishop of Connor, The Rt Revd Alan Abernethy, and the Vice Chancellor of Queen’s, Professor Patrick Johnston, The Most Revd Dr Richard Clarke, Archbishop of Armagh, spoke from the Church of Ireland perspective; the Revd Dr Heather Morris (former President) from the Methodist Church; the Revd Dr Stafford Carson (former Moderator and Principal of Union Theological College) from the Presbyterian tradition and the Revd Dr Eddie McGee from the Catholic Diocese of Down & Connor (representing Bishop Noel Treanor).
