13-14 February 2015 will see the 3rd Christian Postgraduate Leaders’ Conference take place in Leeds.
One of our goals at Faith-in-Scholarship is to support leaders of local groups for Christian postgraduates. This kind of group exists at a good number of universities, but the groups are often small in number, fragile, and struggle to find resources or to make an impact. And there are far too many universities where no such group exists at all.
Are you involved in leading one of those groups? Are you keen to start one at your university? If so, then this conference is for you!
We’re very excited to have Professor Tom McLeish, FRS, as our keynote speaker this year. Tom is a professor of physics at the University of Durham and author of Faith and Wisdom in Science. He has a great deal of experience as a Christian in academia, and a lot of insight into the connection between faith and research.
In addition, there will be sessions looking at practical aspects of leading Christian postgraduate groups, as well as plenty of time to get to know people from other universities, to learn from each other, to encourage each other, and to pray together.
The conference lasts from 7pm on the Friday until 4pm the following afternoon.
The venue is Outwood House, on the edge of Leeds.
The cost is £20 residential, or £15 non-residential. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
