Temple Studies Group symposia begin with an introduction to one aspect of ancient Temple tradition, and then trace this into Christianity, to show how Temple teaching has been preserved in all branches of the Church. The symposia are normally convened once a year and are open to all. In addition to organising one day symposia, the Group will encourage advanced academic research and support occasional colloquia on Temple themes.

Details of forthcoming and past symposia can be found by following the links on this page, with abstracts, papers or presentation notes where available.

Summer Symposia 2018

Hitherto, TSG has been dedicated to the development of scholarship in this field. From 2018, however, we are able to resource local churches wishing to explore the spiritual landscape of the First Temple, which was so fundamental to Jesus and the Early Church.

3 symposia ‘The Faithful remnant as the True Temple ‘ in summer 2018 were:

  • 21 April 2018 at St Oswald’s Church, Warton, Carnforth, Lancashire
  • 16 June 2018 at St Michael’s Church, Lewes, East Sussex
  • 11 August 2018 at Borrowash Methodist Church.

The 2018 local symposia were taster days for Temple Theology.

The next symposium "Rediscovering Advent and Christmas with Temple Theology" will be on Friday 30th November 2018, 10am-5pm, at the Chapel of Our Lady, 37 Barming Road, Wateringbury, Kent,  ME18 5BD.

There is no booking charge, but donations towards costs will be welcome.

Booking in advance is essential as handouts will be made and a sandwich lunch provided. Please book via the email address at the top of this website page.
