This course of study aims to help the church address the shortfall that many Christians have in understanding the African church and its impact on faith in this country, and has been developed by Church Mission Society (CMS), as part of their Pioneer Mission Leadership Training.

Led by Dr Harvey Kwiyani, MA students at CMS will study Africa as a creative, vibrant centre of Christianity and site of theology for the 21st century. Subjects explored will include African church history, African Pentecostalism and African religious traditions in addition to other pertinent themes such as race, colonialism and migration.

Through the programme it is hoped both African diaspora students and those from other ethnic backgrounds will gain an understanding of God’s work in Africa, and among African Christians in the UK and around the world. Under the accreditation of Durham University the programme modules are included in CMS’s MA in Theology, Ministry and Mission.

CMS is drawing on the expertise of Missio Africanus, a mission organisation established in 2014 as a learning community focused on releasing the missional potential of African and other minority ethnic Christians living in the UK. The course hopes to attract church leaders, theologians and those with a genuine interest in learning from the African Church to gain a more complete picture of mission in the 21st century.
