Theology Slam

A search for new engaging voices thinking theologically about the contemporary world

Submissions to the Theology Slam competition have now closed. We received nearly 75 entries, from which our judges had to choose just three finalists:

  • Hannah Barr, 27, a first-year ordinand and Ph.D. student at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. (Theology and #MeToo.)
  • Hannah Malcolm, 26, project co-ordinator at God and the Big Bang, an organisation that runs workshops for young people on science and religion. (Theology and the Environment.)
  • Sara Prats, 23, from Spain, a Master’s student at the University of Birmingham. (Theology and Mental Health.)

Each of the finalists will deliver a short talk based on her ideas at the Theology Slam Live Final on 7 March.

This talk – and responses to questions from the audience and other speakers – will be judged by our esteemed panel, consisting of Eve Poole, John Swinton, Mark Greene, and Isabelle Hamley.

Everyone is welcome to join us to watch the final at St John's Hoxton on Thursday 7 March 2019.
