All of us at Luther King House apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

An opportunity to think theologically about the wider higher education context in England within which theological colleges work. Input will be given on the history of Christian engagement with higher education and on present day theological insights into higher education against the background of the policies within which the sector works.

The seminar will be led by the Revd Professor Stephen Heap. Stephen is a Baptist minister, trained at Northern Baptist College. After pastorates in Wrexham and Blackbird Leys, Oxford, he moved into working in higher education. His roles have included chaplain, lecturer, Church of England National Higher Education Adviser and Professor at the University of Winchester. He has also been the Director of a Christian education centre.

He has published various articles on higher education, a Grove pamphlet ‘What Are Universities Good for?’ (Cambridge, 2012) and edited a book ‘The Universities We Need: theological perspectives’ (Routledge, 2017). He is currently writing a book, with two colleagues, on how Christianity shaped higher education in England, with Stephen writing the section on Free Church involvement.

The seminar will begin at 2pm and finish at approximately 4.30pm.
