Tyndale NT study group 2024: Luke and Acts

The theme for the Tyndale New Testament Study group this year is Luke and Acts, and we are meeting from Wednesday 3rd ­to Friday 5th July 2024 at High Leigh Conference Centre in Hertfordshire, just 20 minutes north of London by train and 45 minutes from Cambridge.

It is an excellent site, with good accommodation and beautiful grounds. We will be meeting simultaneously with other groups, so there a chance to interact with members across the whole of the Tyndale Fellowship.

It promises to be a fascinating exploration, with an international cast of contributors—we hope you can join us! You can book online here, and there are discounted rates available until 5th February 2024.
