Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture

Welcome to the Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture.

The work of the Centre focuses the mission of Regent’s Park College as a whole in fostering ‘the formation of a Christian mind’, through a critical engagement between gospel and culture.

The first Director of the Centre (Dr Alan Kreider) was appointed in 1995, succeeded by the present Director, Dr Nicholas Wood, in 2000. A message from the Director:

‘Only connect…’ The words of the English novelist E.M. Forster are an apt motto for the Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture. Since its inception over a decade ago, the Centre has made connections between the Academy, the Churches and the wider world. Now our dream is to move into a new, exciting phase in which our valuable debates on faith traditions, social and cultural questions are set in a global context. For centuries the world has come to Oxford, now we want the Centre to relate to that world in a richer and more dynamic way. We hope that you will catch the vision and enable us to reach more people, so they too can make the connections…
