The Study Group in Philosophy of Religion exists to glorify God and edify each other by studying the philosophical implications of the Scriptures, applying them to present-day philosophical questions and debates, and defending them against philosophical attack. All Christians are welcome to attend, as are non-Christians prepared to respect the group’s Christian ethos, and the group places a high emphasis on encouraging constructive discussion and on praying for each other.
