Living & Ministering as a Minority
As Christians throughout the Judaeo-Christian dominated West start to feel like a beleaguered and unwanted minority, there has been a tendency to take a defensive stance, either retreating deeper into our bunkers, or going on the attack, trying to reclaim cultural ground that has been lost.
Why is this topic important?
What we are going to do?
We will visit an Orthodox Church and then have three discussions – with an Orthodox priest, a Greek evangelical student, and a Christian refugee from a Muslim-background country – to get a perspective of the different faces and experiences of existing as a minority within Greece.
Born and raised in the UK, but with a Greek/Sri-Lankan heritage, Tim has been serving in the context of the Greek Evangelical Church since 2008, first as an intern and then, since 2011, as a church planter at the Exarcheia plant, together with Alexandros.
He studied Modern and Medieval Languages (MA, University of Cambridge) before switching to Theology (MTh, Union School of Theology).
Before he came to work for the church, he trained as a web developer, something he continues to this day as an instructor.
Tim is married to Cynthia and they have two daughters, Anna Cordelia (4) and Leda Jane (2).
