Featuring outstanding speakers from across the Christian Church, it offers a stimulating and varied programme of worship, lectures and workshops in the beautiful surroundings of Christ Church, Oxford.


Thank you

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2019 Festival of Preaching - our inspiring speakers, wonderful delegates, great sponsors, and the fantastic venue & AV staff! 

We look forward to revisiting the thought-provoking worship, lectures and seminars through audio recordings. These will be available to order soon - make sure you're signed up to our mailing list to be the first to know > 



A message to the festival from Walter Brueggemann

"We preachers have an opportunity to declare that there is another narrative out of which we can live our lives.

It is a narrative of generosity, and freedom, and forgiveness, and hospitality, and justice. 

It is the narrative of the future, and I am very glad that we share it."
