Parked Life: Bringing Regent’s Park College to you during Covid 19

It has been incredible to see how our community has pulled together during this challenging period. As alumni you are at the heart of this community and we would like to provide you with the best of what the College can offer you at this time, from academics, research centres, current and former students.

Parked Life is a place to find resources and ideas directly from Regent’s to you – our much valued alumni and friends. You’ll find more news on Twitter and Facebook and our monthly newsletter, and don’t forget that we welcome your views, ideas and memories of your time as a student at development@regents.ox.ac.uk.

Plus, you can listen again to his interview by Nicky Campbell on BBC Radio 5 Live about unrest in the US, 67 minutes into the programme here.

The Centre for Baptist Studies and Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture are partners in The Sam Sharpe project.
