International Conference: Christianity, Education and Changing Contexts

International conference banner

The conference will contribute to further development of an international community of research and practice among scholars working in the field of Christian Education. It is important that scholars, church leaders and practitioners contributing to the field of Christian education have opportunities to come together to share their own experiences, research, challenges, reflections and hopes. The conference will provide an opportunity for delegates to contribute to dialogue on the theme of changing religious, socio-cultural, political and educational contexts facing Christian education today.

The conference will support:

  • ongoing exploration of the nature, role and identity of Christian education in schools and universities,
  • dialogue which explores ways of being authentic in conveying the Christian message through theological and pedagogical reflection and processes,
  • conversation with and among Christian scholars and colleagues as well as policy makers and practitioners across wider church and education organisations,
  • sharing of pedagogical approaches and good practices,
  • further deliberation on opportunities and challenges that emerge from changing national and international contexts facing Christian education.

This international conference is being organized by the Centre for Christian Education at Liverpool Hope University UK and in partnership with NICER at Canterbury Christ Church University UK. The conference is part of a long-standing collaboration between members in universities with Christian foundations in the UK and beyond.
