Church Training

The church has a never-changing calling to demonstrate the love of God in word and deed. In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that we have both unwittingly and deliberately colluded with racism and xenophobia. In his hope-filled seminars Dr Kandiah presents biblical and practical ways that churches can bring change both in their congregations and communities.

The church still has a long way to go in demonstrating the radical hospitality of God to all nations. Through the #MoreThanAColour seminars Dr Kandiah explores how the church has to deal with its past and push on towards its future as the multicultural people of God.

Dr Kandiah has experience working in both an academic, pastoral and charitable sector. He is on the faculty at Regents Park College, Oxford University and Regent College Vancouver and regularly trains leaders from a wide range of denominational backgrounds.

Dr Kandiah is in demand as a speaker at both national and international conferences. He has spoken at the Q conference in Nashville and to a full house at TEDx Oxford on the topic “Can Hospitality Change the World?” He is a member of the Global Leadership Summit faculty and has spoken in places as diverse as Apple HQ in Cupertino, the GooglePlex, the Cabinet Office in Westminster and the Royal Albert Hall.

Dr Kandiah is a consultant offering both creativity and academic reflection to bring strategic change, culture shift and innovation. He has expertise in the connections between international development, faith literacy and communication. Dr Kandiah is an ambassador for the UK aid and development charity Tearfund.

Attendee Feedback

"I’ve rarely left a seminar in this time on racism feeling empowered and excited."

"Great content, nuanced approach, effective interaction."

'We recently, as the staff of Alive Church, had two sessions of 'Racial Justice' conversations. Our time with Krish was really helpful and informative in understanding the complexities and challenges in our nation at present. Our whole team found Krish's ability to guide our conversations really accessible and non-threatening, though very challenging. I would highly recommend churches and ministries to invest in these engaging seminars.'
