The Methodist Church has announced the death of the Revd Dr Colin M Morris, the renowned preacher, author and broadcaster, who served as President of the Conference in 1976. The son of a miner, Colin Morris was born in Bolton and educated at the universities of Oxford and Manchester. He served as a missionary in Zambia from 1956-1969 and was elected as the first President of the United Church of Zambia. He became known for his passionate and outspoken views on political and social issues and was a close friend of President Kenneth Kaunda, with whom he worked in the negotiations for Zambia's independence. He became minister of Wesley's Chapel, London, in 1970 and General Secretary of the Overseas Division of the Methodist Church in 1975.
