About this Event
In 1971 a gathering of (then) young sociologists who were followers of Jesus Christ met together in the Yorkshire town of Ilkley. Their concern was to reconcile their Christian faith and values with the overwhelmingly secular ethos of the social sciences, to discover how to pursue faithfully their calling as academics and researchers and to influence the future of their chosen discipline. The “Ilkley Group” continued to meet twice yearly at Mill Grove into the early 2000s.
Fifty years on the group invites you to this virtual conference (free of charge). The sessions will include informal gatherings and conversations in plenary and breakout sessions, as well as presentations from Christian sociologists at various stages of their careers.
