Regional Methodist Research Group

The Board Room,
Oxford Brookes University

21st September 2017

The Methodist Church is starting a small number of groups where ordained and lay Methodists, with an interest in scholarship and research, can meet occasionally to discuss and learn from each other.

An embryonic group is planning to meet at Oxford Brookes University.

This event is open to all and it's hoped will develop into a place where inclusive and broad ranging conversation and presentations will enrich and encourage all participants.
