Dr Anne Richards convener of the Mission Theology Advisory Group (MTAG), a partnership between the Church of England’s Mission and Public Affairs Division and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), has received a Lambeth Award presented by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Anne was awarded the Alphege Award for Evangelism and Witness, for ‘a lifetime of service to Christ and his people through the Church of England as policy adviser on the theology of Mission and new religious movements’. Her citation for the award included ‘Anne’s work with MTAG has produced immensely valuable resources which push the church’s understanding of how mission and evangelism “work” to new levels. The Spiritual Journeys website is a fantastic, interactive, resource geared to the range of enquirers who turn first to the Internet rather than to their local church, and whose questions, if often inchoate, are serious’.
