One of our functions as a change network and think-tank is to offer an interface between academic research or commentary, on the one hand, and a wider audience found in NGOs, the media, civic and religious networks, and advocacy organisations on the other.

Over the years, we have been involved with academic conferences and events at universities in Rennes (France), Edinburgh and Stirling (Scotland), Surrey, Manchester and Oxford (England), Indiana (USA) and elsewhere.

We are also keen to encourage the work of independent academics and researchers, and to publish or co-publish with them.

From time-to-time we are able to assist with postgraduate research. In the past we have offered internships to postdoctoral students.

Ekklesia director Simon Barrow is currently a member of the advisory board for the Centre for Theology and Public Issues at the University of Edinburgh, and for the Religion Advisory Board within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Stirling.

We have been pleased to support work in the area of Critical Religion since 2011.
