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.


The Symposia are convened in a central London church. The 2016 symposium was held in St Margaret's Church, Westminster. 


Booking in advance is essential for administration/catering etc. Payment is made on the day of the Symposia by cash or cheque (40.00 or 5.00 for students with proof of status).  A reminder will be sent to those on the TSG mailing list four weeks before the symposium with final details for the event. Please book by emailing the Temple Studies Group via the email link at the top of this page.
