Theology Network Day 2023
17th June 2023
Studying theology, classics, archaeology, history, linguistics, or a related subject? Have you thought about what’s next? Maybe you’re considering further study.
Join us on Saturday 17 June for a day hosted by Tyndale House and UCCF’s Theology Network to explore the possibility of pursuing biblical scholarship as a way of serving Christ.
09:30am until 4:00pm, Tyndale House, 36 Selwyn Gardens, Cambridge, CB3 9BA
Talk to current PhD students about their experience of biblical research, hear from Tyndale House scholars about their current projects, and ask your questions about pursuing scholarship yourself.
There will even be taster sessions involving manuscripts and clay tablets…
Tea and coffee will be available during breaks and lunch will be provided.
Tickets are £5.
Bookings close at midnight on Sunday, 11 June 2023.
