Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and TruthPusey House Theological ConferenceMonday, 6 July to Wednesday, 8 July 2020

Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and Truth will consider the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and the inevitable transformation which any knowledge of, faith in, or encounter with, the Holy Spirit both invites and enables. The 2020 conference will be the third of a series following ‘A Transforming Vision: Knowing and Loving the Triune God’ (2016), and ‘Totus Christus: Knowing and Loving the Son of Man’ (2018).We have an inspiring group of speakers to guide and enlighten us on this journey, by the grace of the Holy Spirit: Lewis Ayres, Markus Bockmuehl, Richard Conrad, Jonathan Goodall, Malcolm Guite, Carol Harrison, Karen Kilby, Matthew Levering, Jack Levison, John A McGuckin,  Oliver O’Donovan, Marcus Plested, Ephraim Radner, Gary Thorne, Graham Tomlin, Robin Ward, Kallistos Ware, Rowan Williams, Judith Wolfe, N T Wright (see more details below).Located in the heart of Oxford, Pusey House was founded to be ‘a house of sacred learning’, a place where theological study is encouraged alongside worship and prayer and in the context of a rich community life. Drawing on the tradition of renewal and ressourcement inspired by the Oxford Movement, we seek to build a community where thoughtful and robust faith is nourished by beauty-inspired worship to form disciples in Christ for service in the Church and in the world.

A finalised schedule will be uploaded in due course. For further information, please see the conference website or the conference event Facebook page. Please direct questions and concerns to
