Whitley Lecture 2020 – Friday 6th March, 3pm – “The Baptist Encounter with Judaism”

Saturday 22 February, 2020


We invite you to join us at 3.00pm on Friday 6th March for the 2020 Whitley Lecture at the South Wales Baptist College.

This year’s lecture will be given by the Revd Robert Parkinson. Robert has been the minister of Didsbury Park Baptist Church, Manchester, since 2007. Before that, he led churches elsewhere in the North of England and in the United States.

For this year’s lecture, Robert writes:

Are Baptist churches sometimes guilty of unwitting anti-Judaism? What is the state of play for Baptist-Jewish relations? This lecture will examine these and similar questions. Drawing on the positive side of Baptist history and practice, it will offer guidelines for encouraging a greater regard for Judaism and a closer friendship with Jews.

The 2020 Whitley Lecture will be held in the main Lecture Hall at the South Wales Baptist College, 54 Richmond Road, Cardiff. CF24 3UR. Refreshments will be served from 2.30pm.

Admission is free – and we very much hope that you will be able to join us for this important lecture.
