A weekly scholars' community for biblical formation, mutual support and onward service

The Fellows Programme

The annual Fellows Programme is an intensive weekly term-time study programme for 10 PhD students with seminars, discussion of guided reading, and supported practical exercises.

Fellows receive a small bursary and journey together through a three part curriculum from November to June:

  • Theological and philosophical foundations 
  • Contributing to our fields from a Christian perspective
  • Drawing on our academic expertise for winsome and persuasive apologetic outreach

Parts II and III culminate in giving group feedback on one another’s essays and practice TED-style talks respectively. 

Fellows are helped into opportunities for service and alumni can continue their journey together through ongoing optional termly book discussions and annual reunions at the Forming a Christian Mind conference.

Taster Sessions

We will be hosting three ‘taster’ sessions open to all-comers in November and December 2023. These taster sessions will provide an introduction to the curriculum, and you are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions if you would like to apply to the Fellows Programme.
