Charismatic Renewal Conference 2016

Running between 13-14 September  |  29th Jun 2016

Charismatic ConferenceSponsored by the Open University, and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford


The charismatic renewal movement has made a major impact on global Christianity. From the 1950s onwards, this diverse movement – with its emphasis on the presence and power of the Holy Spirit – has influenced the mission, worship, experience and congregational life of churches in many different denominations across the world. It is one of the most important developments in the recent history of the Christian church.

What can twenty-first century churches and congregations learn from the history of charismatic renewal? How can informed historical awareness contribute to our understanding of contemporary Christian identities?

This history conference, at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, on 13-14 September 2016, welcomes Christian leaders, theological college students, historians, and all those with an interest in the topic. It will draw together a range of international scholars to discuss the historical significance and implications of charismatic renewal.
