This conference will be based at Trinity College Queensland in Brisbane, Australia on the evening of Thursday 1 August from 7–9pm and on Friday 2 August from 9–6pm and hosted online. Ecclesia and Ethics is an international biblical studies and theology conference bringing scholars and practitioners into a global conversation.

The conference is a hybrid conference, though many papers will be given from the Brisbane location at Trinity College Queensland. Presenters and attendees will be able to participate by delivering papers and conducting Q+A through webinar software from anywhere in the world, live, in real-time.

You’ll be able to sign up as an individual, a small group, or a church. You can attend from a distance or on-site here in Brisbane, Australia. Whether you’re here on the ground, or tuning in from abroad, you’ll be able to ask questions live, in real-time, and to access all of the talks through archived links, in case you miss a presentation due to time-zones, or other commitments.
