The Anglican-Pentecostal Theological Steering Group recently hosted a consultation on Pneumatology & Baptism in the Spirit, held on Tuesday 2nd April 2019 at the Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, Birmingham University.
This one-day consultation built on earlier gatherings, including an exploratory 24-hour conference of English Anglicans and representatives of various English and UK-wide Pentecostal churches and networks held at High Leigh in April 2014, a November 2015 day conference on Pentecostalism and ecumenical relations hosted by Churches Together in England (CTE), and a bilateral consultation featuring representatives of the Church of England and the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) at the Focolare Centre, Welwyn Garden City in May 2016.
Thirty-six invitees from Anglican and Pentecostal traditions attended and were split into mixed discussion groups for the duration of the day. These included graduate students from the Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies (CPCS), who had kindly agreed to host the event. The meeting began with Pentecostal-style worship led by the APTSG co-chair Marcus Chilaka from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, and ended with CofE Evening Prayer, led by APTSG Anglican member and co-facilitator of the Consultation, the Revd Dr David Hilborn, Principal of Moorlands College.
