As a minority community in a post-Christendom society, what is the missional vocation of the church? What can we learn from the prophet Jeremiah’s counsel to the Israelite exiles in Babylon?

After obtaining a Law degree from London University, Stuart Murray Williams spent 12 years planting a leading a multi-ethnic church in East London. He then spent the next 3 years obtaining a PhD in Church history and hermeneutics.
