On the 22nd November the Revd Dr Toby Howarth will be visiting the Woolf Institute to deliver a reflection on ‘Perspectives on Mission in 21st Century Britain’. This seminar will mark the launch of the Lambeth-Jewish Forum document: Jews and Christians: Perspectives on Mission, a document produced collaboratively between the Lambeth-Jewish Forum and the Woolf Institute.

The Revd Dr Toby Howarth, a Patron of the Woolf Institute, has recently been appointed as the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Secretary for Inter Religious Affairs. Dr Howarth has long experience of working in a diversity of inter religious contexts. Born in Kenya and educated in the United States, his interest in inter faith began during a summer in Pakistan teaching English to Afghan refugees; since which he has worked and studied in Cairo, Uganda, India and Rotterdam.

During his previous role as Vice-Principal at Crowther Hall, Dr Howarth also taught Islamic studies, following a five year stay in India researching Islamic preaching. Dr Howarth is currently an Inter Faith Adviser to the Bishop of Birmingham, alongside his parish work as Vicar of St Christopher’s, Springfield, a church in a majority Muslim area of the city.
