Throughout the Year

We have regional and national gatherings in the U.S. as well as an annual Summer Institute in Cambridge, England. We would love to see you at one of our next events! 

Conversations for the Common Good

We regularly host events featuring lectures, performances, and onstage conversations with leading thinkers.

Annual Ministry Conference

An annual gathering in San Francisco each January, where ministry leaders gather to learn and share together.

Summer Institute in Cambridge

Each summer we host the Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute at one of the colleges of Cambridge University.


Scot Sherman is the executive director of Newbigin House of Studies, and host of Conversations for the Common Good—public conversations with writers, artists, musicians and leading thinkers about the issues that divide us and the ideals that bring us together.

Ministry Conference

What does Christian ministry for the common good look like? How can Christians love the world as God loved the world? What do we need to know and do in order to seek peace in our contexts? Join us as we consider these important questions together. You can read about our 2020 conference here. Our next conference will be in January 2022.
