A Sion College Seminar Supper with Bishop Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy

Race, Memory and Dialogue – “Culture Wars” and the Church of England

Wednesday 16th November 2022, 7:00 for 7:30 pm

The Royal Over-Seas League, Over-Seas House, Park Place, St James's Street, SW1A 1LR

History can cast long shadows, but speaking about the sins of the past can feel painful and risky, particularly where injustice and inequality still linger. In an age of “culture wars”, where comment and social media can seem increasingly polarised and confrontational, we can lament our inability to enter into dialogue. Bishop Lusa believes that leaders in faith have a privileged task of offering healthier patterns of interaction across the world’s divides, and will help us to reflect on the role of Anglican clergy in mediating truth-telling and reconciliation.

Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy was ordained in 2008 and served as an Assistant Curate in the Diocese of Canterbury, before becoming Vicar of St Aidan, Gravesend in 2012. In 2017 he was appointed BAME Mission and Ministry Enabler in the Diocese of Leicester. In November 2020 he took part in the Sion College online seminar discussing Azariah France-Williams’ book Ghost Ship, on institutional racism and the Church of England. He was consecrated Bishop of Willesden in January 2022.
