Southern and Central England

As English speaking Canadian Christians, the history of Christianity in England is of particular importance. Through the influence of the British Empire and the United States, English Christianity has had an unparalleled impact on the history of Global Christianity. This trip will consider the full breath of Christian history in England: Early, Mediaeval, Reformation, Post-Reformation (incl. Dissenters like the Baptists), Evangelicalism and the Contemporary scene. You will experience English culture (from pubs and castles to countryside and cityscapes). You will visit everything from Saxon churches, Norman monasteries and castles, medieval cathedrals, Reformation sites, centres of education, old Baptist churches and have opportunities to worship in contemporary evangelical/Baptist contexts.
