Busy August For CWC

Viral 2016: CWC had a busy August 2016. The first activity of the month was the inaugural partnership activity with Viral Conference. Kyama Mugambi spent some time at the Nairobi Chapel engaging with pastors and talking about the importance of world Christianity research of the church in Africa. CWC sponsored a live stream of the final commissioning session at the conference.

Colloquium August 2016: The next activity was the August 2016 Colloquium, which Prof Shaw chaired. From 22nd to 26th August, Michael Wambua, Heglon Kitawi and Kyama Mugambi made some presentations from their current research. At the colloquium were Dr Enoch Opuka and Prof J.N.K Mugambi who spoke about their experiences in publishing.

CWC Book Presentation: The colloquium ended on a high with the presentation of the book “African Urban Christian Identity” edited by Steven O’Malley. The book was handed over to the Librarian, Mr Ephraim Mudave. The book contains chapters by CWC’s Dr Wanjiru Gitau and Dr George Atido. The book is the result of an ongoing research project on Christianity around the world headed by Prof Jim Miller, a former AIU professor.
