Building Bridges between Theology and Education

Thursday 17th March 2011

Building Bridges between Theology and Education

How does your theology relate and impact your view of education? Join us to hear Prof John Sullivan, one of only two 'Professors of Christian Education' in the country, as he unpacks the relationship between theology and education and what this means in your specific context. Building Bridges between Theology and Education - how theology can help shape the work of Christian schools will seek to explore how the Christian faith can shape educational practice. 


Professor John Sullivan, Professor of Christian Education at Liverpool Hope University

Rt Rev Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of CoventryProfessor Sullivan teaches Master's courses in Religion in Politics, Catholic Studies and Christian Educational Leadership. He also supervises doctoral research in Catholic Studies and in Christian education.

A frequent keynote speaker at local, national and international conferences on aspects of mission into practice in Christian educational leadership, his other activities include being on the editorial board of International Studies in Catholic Education and serving as a consultant for Liverpool Hope University's Centre for Christian Education. Furthermore, he is a member of the national steering group for Transforming Lives, one of The Stapleford Centre's projects whose aim it is to promote teaching as a Christian vocation.

His special areas of academic interest include Christian higher education, the interconnections between theology, philosophy, and education, and the match between purposes of, contexts for and approaches to Christian education.
