Registration for
BNTS Meeting 2021
Hybrid meeting
at Durham University

Registration is now closed

Booking for the 2021 British New Testament Conference hosted by Durham University is now open. The Conference will begin on Thursday 19 August (registration from 2pm) and end with lunch on Saturday 21 August.

Registration will close on Thursday 29 July.

A message from our local organisers:

Registration is now open for the 2021 BNTS meeting, to be held at St John’s College, Durham, and online, 19-21 August, and the local organising team looks forward to welcoming you.

We’re especially grateful to those who participated in the recent poll, which indicated strong support for a return to a ‘normal’ in-person event although with an additional online component.

For those wishing and able to attend in person, we advise early booking as we will have to cap numbers at a much lower figure than our pre-pandemic norm of up to 200. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of participants, and for that reason accommodation at St John’s and nearby Hatfield College will be en suite only.

If individuals registered for the in-person event later find themselves unable to attend, the conference fee will be refunded (minus a £15 registration fee). All fees will be refunded on the same basis in the (unlikely but not impossible) event that we are unable to proceed with the conference at all.

Finally, we encourage all who are able to do so to contribute generously to the fund providing financial assistance to postgraduates attending the conference; there is an option for this on the registration website.

3) Online Only £35.00

Please note, there is very limited parking available at the conference venue. Priority will be given to those who require parking for accessibility reasons, so please do state during booking if this is the case.

You will need to choose your 1st and 2nd choice seminar when you register, so please review the seminar information (available here) before booking.

In addition, the following will be asked:
a) The British New Testament Society seeks to promote research of the New Testament and related writings. Attendance at the conference is open to those who fall into one of the following categories (you will be asked to tick the criteria you meet):

  •  teach New Testament (or a cognate discipline) at a recognized HEI
  •  hold a doctorate in the area of New Testament (or a cognate discipline)
  • a postgraduate researcher in New Testament at doctoral level

Individuals who do not meet any of the above criteria may be given special permission to attend on application to the Secretary and with the approval of the Committee.

b) if you are willing for the organisers to share your name, institution, email address, seminar choice, and research interests with other delegates. This request is to enable us to produce a list of delegates which will enable you to find others working in the same area as you and to contact them easily. We need your permission to share this information because of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);

c) that you agree to the BNTS Code of Conduct, available here.
