UK & Europe Langham Scholars ConsultationLangham Scholars studying in UK & Europe meet for consultation

Last month, 20 Scholars who are currently studying at institutions in the UK and Europe met in Oxford for a highly informative week of lectures, peer presentations and times of fellowship. These annual occasions provide Langham Scholars with much-needed opportunities to share their work with their peers and receive valuable feedback. You may notice that three Scholars in the photo (left) have their faces hidden - this is because they are from countries where there is a security risk for Christians. To find out more about what a Scholars' consultation is, watch this short video of the 2017 gathering.

KeswickWe'll be at the Keswick Convention 2019!

If you're heading to Keswick this year, look out for us at 'Base Camp', the global mission exhibition. We're also holding an exclusive Langham reception during Weeks 1 & 2 - more details are coming soon.


We have a ‘road show’! You could call it ‘glimpses of global church’, where some of the team share recent Langham events and experiences from the Majority World. Three recent 7-8-minute videos and short interviews, giving insight and showing the impact of each of the Scholar, Preaching and Literature programmes, provide the stimulus for some questions and then a time of prayer. It’s not exactly ‘rocket science’ in mission and ministry profile – but if you like the format of this news email, then I’m sure you’ll like the extended version! A group in Bristol enjoyed the experience last week and maybe your own church or group would like the resources to run something similar? This eNews follows the extraordinarily influential progress of one Langham Scholar, some real Langham breakthroughs in academic theological literature and the impact of a preaching seminar in Ethiopia. That’s still just a ‘glimpse of global church’ of course, but might you like to share that glimpse? Thank you so much, as ever, for your interest and support.

With Christian greetings,

John Libby

National Director, Langham Partnership UK and Ireland
