Aim of Course

This course is intended primarily for students of the Cambridge Federation of Theological Colleges. However, applications are welcome for up to 10 further places for similar delegates from outside Cambridge. The course will include input on the science and theology of environmental concern, as well as its practical application. We are delighted to be able to offer, as part of the course, a field trip to the Lewknor Chiltern Gateway Project, where we shall be†met by the†Revds Simon Brignall and Dave Bookless (A Rocha). Sessions on the other days of the course will take place at St Edmund's College, with lunches nearby at Westminster College. Accommodation for those from outside Cambridge will be provided in one of these Colleges or a suitable†alternative.
