Public Lectures

William Orange Memorial Lecture

The William Orange Memorial Lecture (WOML) is held each year in Christchurch and at times in other cities in memory of William Orange to encourage Evangelical ministry in the NZ Church. The topics chosen are issues which need to be looked at biblically.

The Gospel genius of Thomas Cranmer – timeless truths for today’s church

We are excited to be hosting Rev. Dr. Ashley Null for two speaking engagements in September. Ashley is a world-renowned scholar on Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation.  As well as his teaching position at the Humboldt University of Berlin, Ashley is Canon Theologian of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Kansas in The Episcopal Church, and has spoken regularly at GAFCON and serves in their theological education network.  He was also the chaplain to the US Olympic team at the Rio games, and is an exceptionally engaging speaker.  These are not-to-be-missed events for anyone who loves the gospel, God’s grace, and his work in the English Reformation.
