About the speaker
John Sentamu is the 97th Archbishop of York. He came to the UK having grown up in rural Uganda and spent the first four years of his ministry in Cambridge and Richmond, fourteen years in inner city parishes in South London, six years as Bishop for Stepney and three years as Bishop for Birmingham, two Episcopal areas which each contain some of the poorest and some of the most affluent areas in the country.
During his years as a parish priest, he served on the General Synod and its Standing Committee and other bodies. He was particularly involved in the work of the Archbishop's Commission on Urban Priority Areas, the Committee for Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns, the Decade of Evangelism Steering Group, and the Archbishops' evangelism initiative, Springboard.
As Bishop for Stepney, he also served on the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry Team and chaired the Damilola Taylor Murder Investigation Review. His stated priorities for ministry have been 'to seek God's rule of justice, righteousness, peace and love; to be part of God's movement of change, meeting real concerns with real life; to reach out to all by standing at the intersection where human need and God's love meet; being willing to take risks and be vulnerable, the servant of others as Christ was servant of all; and praying constantly, sharing in God's groanings and broken-heartedness for his world.
