The Graduate Christian Forum is a place for conversation between postgrads and faculty from across the Christian community in Oxford. It’s a place to come together and think about what it means to be a Christian engaged in academic work, about how our faith shapes our disciplinary work and vice versa.

We hold a Monday night speaker series during term, upstairs in The Mitre pub (unless otherwise noted; map here– stairs to the right as you enter). The talk begins at 7.30 PM and typically ends around 9.00 PM. Please join us at 7.00 PM for snacks and conversation.

A list of this term’s talks can be found below and audio recordings of previous talks can be found here.
