On the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther publishing his Ninety-Five Theses in Wittenberg, Germany, join us to consider the story of Luther and the Reformation, and its lasting legacy for Christians at home and abroad.
Revd Dr David Hilborn will set the Reformation in its wider context, and will give insight into the personal journey of faith taken by Luther as a monk and as a reformer.
David will also reflect on the impact of the Reformation, then and now, with the challenge to the church of Semper Reformanda – always being reformed.
David Hilborn is Principal of St John’s School of Mission, Nottingham, with a vision of ‘equipping for God’s mission in a world of change’.
Prior to joining St John’s David was Director of the North Thames Ministerial Training Course and Assistant Dean of St Mellitus College, also Associate roles with London School of Theology, King’s College, London, St Paul’s Church, Old Ford. He was Head of Theology at the Evangelical Alliance between 1997 and 2006 and a member of the Theological Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance and the Churches Together in England Theology and Unity Group.
David has over twenty-five years’ experience as an ordained Minister in the United Reformed Church and the Church of England, having served at various times as senior minister, joint minister or assistant minister of six churches in London and Nottingham.
Over the years, David has had several books and articles published in the areas of doctrine, theology of culture and Evangelical, Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity, such as: Picking up the Pieces: Can Evangelicals Adapt to Contemporary Culture?, The Nature of Hell, God and the Generations (with Matt Bird), and co-wrote the authorised history of the Evangelical Alliance with Ian Randall – One Body in Christ (Paternoster).
