Join us in summer 2022 amid the “dreaming spires” of Oxford, as we explore this important theme with renowned scholars from the arts and sciences, leaders in ministry and the major professions, and an array of literary, visual, and performing artists.
You’ll enjoy stimulating lectures, challenging workshops, meaningful worship services, and a rich variety of cultural programs, all in the good company of friends and colleagues – old and new.
Don’t miss this truly memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience of faith, reason, and imagination in the company of friends!
If you can’t make it in-person to Oxford, we are now offering a livestream option for the first time ever!
NOTE: THE CONFERENCE HAS NOW SOLD OUT. WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING NEW REGISTRATIONS.

Check back on this page regularly as we release updates on the conference.
Who is this conference for?
Our attendees come from a wide array of backgrounds, experience, ages, and denominations. The conference is for anyone interested in the theme, whether they be laypersons, professors, businesspersons, clergy, students, or teachers.
What is common is a love of faith, learning, fellowship, and the arts (and quite often, a love of the works of Lewis, Tolkien, and related writers and artists; though knowledge of Lewis and the Inklings is definitely not required!).
