The KLC Research Collective

Amidst the hard secularism and pervasive individualism of the West the KLC Research Collective (KRC) is counter-cultural in its concern with Christian scholarship in community, rooted in spirituality, oriented towards how then shall we live? A central concern of KLC is to have a research community at the heart of our work, viz. the KLC Research Collective. Through the KRC we seek to facilitate communal, inter-disciplinary scholarship coram deo, for the glory of God and the flourishing of the church and the world. 

“I have come to see that theological ethics or public theology, far from being a marginal discipline, is really the culmination of Christian insight from across the disciplines. 

The niche we think KLC needs to fill is that of high-level Christian research across the disciplines oriented towards the question, ‘How then shall we live?'”

Exploring KLC's Research Vision

KLC Director, Craig Bartholomew, recently presented For Such a Time as This: KLC’s Research Vision to a gathering of our Fellows and KLC community in which he shared some of our vision, core aims and ethos.

Whether you are an established part of our community, or wishing to learn more, we encourage you to read For Such a Time as This.

Research Hubs

Under the wider umbrella of the KRC we have organically developing discipline-specific hubs, including areas like Mathematics, Sustainability, Economics, International Relations, Technology, and more. Our four Scripture Collective Seminars also function as hubs.

Scripture Collective

The Scripture Collective is made up of our four Seminars: Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar, Scripture and University Seminar, Scripture and Doctrine Seminar, and Scripture and Church Seminar.

PhD Supervision Programme

KLC is committed to Christian research, across the disciplines, oriented to the question, 'how then should we live?' In partnership with Union Theological College, Belfast, we have a team of senior scholars who supervise PhD students. Join our community and our effort to rethink Christian research from a missional standpoint.

KLC Fellows

KLC Associate Fellows are prominent scholars and practitioners, working in their own areas, while also part of our Research Collective. Formal members of our Research Collective also take the name Fellow.

The World Evangelical Alliance Project

Evangelicalism is a global movement facing challenges on many fronts, some political, some social, some theological. The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and KLC have partnered together to begin a conversation about what “evangelical” means for the twenty-first century.
