During the webinar launch, a panel of speakers will be discussing the book, examining its themes and focusing on how decolonisation can contribute to the future of mission. This is very timely as the topic of decolonisation, which is central to the work of the World Council of Churches (WCC) after the WCC 11th Assembly, has been particularly charged to CWME to explore.

The editorial discussion following the webinar will offer deeper engagement with the text, especially by the study centres that produced the body of work. Discussions will enable further input into the conversations that will then feed into regional publications.
Participants will also be invited to heighten their involvement and interest in the work of the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism.
