Date and location

You are warmly invited to the Cambridge Apologetics conference which will take place on Friday and Saturday, 30 June - 1 July at St John's College Old Divinity School and the Round Church, Cambridge. Coffee and a sandwich lunch will be provided on both days.

The conference will run from 9:30am - 5pm both days.


What does it mean for us to communicate the gospel effectively and persuasively in today’s cultural moment? How might we meet people in their questions and interests, and draw them with us to appreciate the person and work of Christ?

The 2023 Cambridge Apologetics conference brings together an experienced group of speakers and apologists to engage and equip Christians in the city:

  • Considering the questions people are actually asking
  • Preparing to give a defence for the hope that we have
  • Thinking creatively about the opportunities presented within our culture

The gathering spans two days and you can sign up for either or both of them, depending on your availability. Day 1 (Friday) will focus on the different opportunities afforded by hospitality, personal dialogue, the arts, and academia, with teaching from Peter Williams, Andrew Fellows, Tony Watkins, and others. Day 2 (Saturday) will consider specific topics of contemporary interest, with teaching from John Lennox, Glynn Harrison, Andrew Fellows, Tony Watkins, and others. More details and programme to follow.

Speakers include:

John Lennox is a world renowned author and speaker, mathematician, philosopher of science and Emeritus Professor at the University of Oxford.

Peter Williams is the Warden of Tyndale House and a member of the Faculty of Divinity in the University of Cambridge, who recently authored "Why Trust the Gospels?"

Andrew Fellows is best known for having directed the work of English L'Abri for 15 years, and serving as chairman of L'Abri International. He is now an author and pastor who regularly gives training in apologetics.

Glynn Harrison is a Christian psychiatrist and academic. He visits churches, universities, theological colleges, and conferences, speaking about Christian faith in relation to psychology, neuroscience and mental health.

Tony Watkins is a speaker and writer on media, culture, and the Bible. Previously at the Damaris Trust he is pursuing PhD research on the relationship between the biblical prophets and today’s media.
