Constance Coltman centenary celebrations
September 16, 2017 @ 1:00 pm
Join us for a public lecture on women’s empowerment
A public lecture as part of the United Reformed Church and the Congregational Federation celebrations marking the centenary of the ordination of Constance Coltman as a Congregational minister. She was the first woman to be ordained in a mainstream British denomination. A committed pacifist and suffragist, Constance’s courage showed from the start in the sacrificial ministry she shared with her husband in London’s East End.
On Saturday 16 September at 1pm there will be a public lecture at the Dr William’s Library in London. You will have the opportunity to hear from three renowned speakers from different parts of the world who will explore issues relating to the marginalisation and persecution of women in various contexts. Issues relating to the ordination and empowerment of women will also be discussed and the final paper will bring it back to Constance Coltman. There will be time for questions and conversations. If you are interested in attending this exciting event please contact Eve Parker to register your interest.
