Convenors: Andrew Rogers and Helen Cameron bible@biapt.org

The Bible and practical theology group aims to explore all aspects of how the Bible is engaged in practical theology. Everyone with an interest in this interface is welcome. We meet every year at the annual conference usually with a guest speaker. The Bible and practical theology special interest group was formed in 2011 and held its first symposium in 2012 – you can read a report here. We held our second symposium in December 2022 (pictured below) and you can read a report here. If you would like to join the group distribution list, do email us at bible@biapt.org
