I'm not sure whether there are any postgraduates (or soon-to-be postgraduates) in the CU at Staffordshire, but if there are, we've got a weekend conference coming up in a few weeks not far from Stafford. Would you mind forwarding this message to anyone who might be interested? Do get in touch if you'd like to know more.

Transforming the Mind: Wisdom and Wonder
The Tenth Annual National Conference for Christian Postgraduates and Postdoctoral Researchers.
This year's conference is scheduled for 22-24 June, in the picturesque setting of Dovedale House, in the Derbyshire Dales.
Speakers: Prof Sir Colin Humphreys and Prof Alison Phipps.
The conference flyer is available here:
We also have a Poster:
We believe that this event is unique in the UK, providing space for students and academics of many disciplines and nationalities to share fellowship, ideas and experiences in a really inspiring setting.
The conference challenges us to 'offer [our] bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God' and 'to be transformed by the renewing of [our] minds' (Romans 12:1). As students, researchers and academics, we meet to encourage each other and explore what God is calling us to be and to do in the university and outside. As we ask questions about our faith, our work, our relationships and our world, we seek to share wisdom and learn from each other by God's Spirit.
