The Graduate Christian Forum is a society for conversation between postgraduate (e.g., DPhil, Master’s degree) students 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.
As a lecture society, we hold a Monday night speaker series during term, upstairs in The Mitre pub (unless otherwise noted). 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.
The Oxford Graduate Christian Forum is an officially recognised Oxford University Students’ Union society, previously known as the Oxford Graduate Christian Union.
During term, we meet at St Ebbe’s each Tuesday evening from 7:30 to eat together, get to know others and encourage each other to know Christ and live for him as we open and discuss the Bible. During the summer, we meet at St Ebbe’s at 5:15pm each Tuesday evening for a short talk and discussion time (and often go for a meal afterwards).
Richard Brash is the postgraduate student minister at St Ebbe’s. Email him to find out more: email@example.com
This ancient statement of faith called the Nicene Creed has been handed down from generation to generation of Christian believers. We gladly now play our part in affirming it.
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
