Cancelled: Tyndale Fellowship Conference 2020
Considering the current situation in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Tyndale Fellowship Quadrennial which was planned to take place between 29th June and 1st July. Though sad, this will not be a surprise.
We are looking into alternative ways that we might share ideas and fellowship during this time and will update our webpage in the next few weeks with further information. We will be in touch about booking fees in due course. Until then, thank you for your patience.
Monday 29 June – Wednesday 1 July 2020

The Tyndale Fellowship offers an opportunity to engage with the best of evangelical scholarship, and to meet other researchers from around the world.
It raises all sorts of issues when large numbers from a specific people group move outside their customary borders (irrespective of whether they are forced to move or do so voluntarily). In the past we have seen movements from wealthy and powerful parts of the world to less powerful areas (colonialism). Nowadays we also see the reverse (refugee crisis, economic migration). In response we have seen the rise of schools of thought such as post-colonialism, unhealthy nationalism, and also a reversal of internationalism.
There are no easy answers to complex questions, but as evangelicals, how do we think about these issues? What does Christ urge us to do? How does God’s Word help us to be shining lights? What are the parallels we see in Scripture? What are their limitations? Do we need to separate our ‘national identity’ from our ‘Christian identity’? How should we plead the cause of the orphan and the widow? Should we perhaps just concentrate on the Gospel opportunities which the migration phenomenon offers us?
