Join us in the discussion of the state and the implications of Chinese Christianity in Britain at London School of Theology in October

About this event

While the Chinese Christian community is the fastest growing Christian population in Britain, its history and implications are largely neglected by both social scientists and theologians. In 2021, London School of Theology and the British and Foreign Bible Society jointly initiated the Bible and the Chinese Community in Britain (BCCB) research project. The BCCB is the first systematic study of Chinese Christianity in Britain and aims to establish a comprehensive understanding of the state of engagement amongst Chinese people in Britain and the impact of the Bible on their lives.

In the light of the BCCB’s vision, this symposium invites scholars, researchers, clergies, and students to foster fresh conversations on the issue of Chinese Christianity in Britain. The symposium will include the release of key findings from the BCCB. It will be a forum for exchanging ideas from an array of disciplinary perspectives and topics, from accounts of empirical analysis to theological discourses, and from political unrest in Hong Kong and China to Confucianism and Christianity.

Please register your place for free on Eventbrite (Registration is essential). We also offer a limited number of on-site guest rooms and student bursaries. Email yinxuan.huang@lst.ac.uk for details and for any other questions.
