Free public lectures in July
The annual Summer Institute is already sold out, but two of the lectures, by Professor David Ford and Professor Miroslav Volf, are open to the public.
The Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute 2018
The Newbigin Centre is holding its 5th annual Summer Institute at Trinity Hall Cambridge 9-12th July.
The theme of the 2018 Institute is ‘Jesus and the World’s Faiths’, and as in previous years we will be taking Lesslie Newbigin’s work as the starting point for our reflections on contemporary mission. He confessed 'Jesus Christ is Lord of all' but said, with equal conviction, 'Jesus Christ is infinitely greater than my limited view of him.'
With speakers David Ford, Miroslav Volf, Muthuraj Swamy, Carol Walker and Shirin Shafie we are thrilled to say that the conference has quickly sold out!
Free public lectures
However, if you would like to come to one of the two public lectures, do let us know. As part of the programme we have Professor David Ford speaking on Monday 9th July at the St John’s Old Divinity School, and Professor Miroslav Volf speaking on Thursday 12th July at the Cripps Auditorium, Magdalene College. Both lectures will be held at 4.00pm and finish by 5.30. If you would like to book a place at either or both of these lectures, do let us know so we can reserve you a place (firstname.lastname@example.org). They are both free of charge.

As in previous years, the Newbigin Centre is hosting the conference in partnership with the Newbigin House of Studies in San Francisco.
