Alister McGrath

I am delighted that you would like to learn more about the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.

"Under God's grace, we seem to have gone from strength to strength since our founding and we are looking to the future with eager anticipation. Every year that passes reinforces the need for the church to have leaders who are skilled in the art and science of commending and defending the Christian faith, and passing on those skills to their congregations."


"The OCCA has set out to raise up a new generation of Christian leaders, in church and society at large, who can carry on the succession of great apologists of the past and present. Who will carry on the work of C.S.Lewis? Or a Ravi Zacharias?

It could be you - and the OCCA could help you to do it."



Now, more than ever, we need business leaders, lawyers, academics and other professional laypeople who can exercise a marketplace ministry among their peers.
