Course Description

Europe is a unique civilization, built on the pillars of a Christian worldview, yet these pillars have all but disappeared. Can Europe survive this loss in its present crisis? And how can a reformational view reshape the landscape in this battle for the heart of Europe? Andrew Fellows has developed his lectures on the seven pillars of Europe, looking at "When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do? Contending for the soul of Europe". Jon Thompson will focus on how the reformational worldview historically shaped the areas of philosophy and science, while Arthur will cover Islam's reformational values, such as God's rule over all of life and missiology, but how it is implemented in a very different way. Arthur will compare and contrast Christian and Islamic theologies of societal reformation with contemporary examples.


For several years now, Westminster College has provided the ideal venue for our Summer School. A theological college affiliated to Cambridge University, since 1844 it has served as a place for people to think through their faith and train for ministry. The college has recently undergone a major £7 million building project, so standards have never been higher. Of particular note to us, the bedrooms and lecture room have been stripped out and newly refurbished, with Wi-Fi connection.

All of the usual benefits of Westminster remain: high quality meals cooked by Westminster chefs, served in the beautiful dining hall; everything for the week is less than a three-minute walk away, with accommodation, lecture room, chapel and dining hall all in the same building -- all on the same corridor in fact. There is also on-site parking, with easy motorway access from the M11.

What's more, based at Westminster, course participants can enjoy all that Cambridge has to offer – majestic colleges and chapels, a lively market square, punting on the river, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the historic Round Church.
