The Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu is currently paying a three-day visit to Northern Ireland to give a series of talks and lectures.

This evening he will be the keynote speaker at the annual Church of Ireland Theological Lectures at Queen's University.

His first talk (5.30pm) in the David Keir Building on the Stranmillis Road and it is expected to attract an audience representing a wide cross-section of clerical and lay opinion inside and outside the established churches.

Dr Sentamu will also lecture at the same venue tomorrow at 5.30pm.

Last night, the Archbishop was the main speaker at the opening meeting of the Kingdom Come Conference, organised by the Evangelical Alliance Northern Ireland, in the Spires Centre.

National director Stephen Cave said: “We were very honoured to have the Archbishop of York here and its a perfect way for us to start the Kingdom Come Conference which is bringing together people from all over Ireland and the UK.”

Dr Sentamu who was appointed Archbishop of York in 2005 is known for his direct style and his readiness to speak out on major issues.
