The 19th International ESBVM Congress 2014 is to be held, DV, at Magdalene College, Cambridge, UK from 22nd – 25th September 2014; the venue making it especially attractive.
Please note the dates in your diary now, and if at all possible advise the Hon General Secretary e-mail: email@example.com if you are interested in attending to help with planning. The Master of Magdalene, The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Baron Williams of Oystermouth, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, has generously made himself available as a keynote speaker. In this he fulfils a promise he made to play a fuller part for the ESBVM when he had relinquished office as Archbishop. His willingness to play such a part along with that of other distinguished contributors indicates the privilege the society enjoys in the interest shown by those who recognise the continuing importance of the ESBVM’s efforts in this area of ecumenical exchange. The Congress has been made briefer at the behest of potential participants, but will hopefully have a satisfyingly rich fare in that curtailed meeting time. More details will follow in a full programme with booking details and booking form available on request shortly.
The participation and interest of the Master of Magdalene, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and others hopefully make the Congress something to be keenly anticipated.
The Congress, based in Magdalene College, is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, and situated in the heart of Cambridge on the banks of the River Cam. Founded in 1428 as a Monk’s Hostel, which hosted Benedictine student monks, it hosts over 300 students in term time.
