Become better equipped at defending your faith with our training events, online course and the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.

Training Day

The ‘Why? Series’ is designed to help believers explore key questions about the Christian faith. The interactive training not only provides answers to some of the most difficult topics believers face today, but also gives practical guidance for those wanting to communicate their faith effectively.

RZIM Online Academy

The RZIM Academy is an online training curriculum designed to help individuals become better equipped to give an answer to anyone who asks them to give a reason for the hope that they have in Jesus. RZIM speakers share their expertise in the form of recorded lectures which are thoughtfully planned and compiled as online apologetics courses.

Training Weekend

Running from Friday morning through to Sunday afternoon, Training Weekends provide in-depth teaching in apologetics and the spiritual disciplines in the stimulating environment of Oxford. The training allows for a lot of interaction with speakers and opportunities to ask questions.

Summer School

The Oxford Summer School is an intense week of training in evangelism and apologetics, conducted by the speaking team of RZIM, as well as a number of guest lecturers. The week focuses on a particular apologetics theme and includes plenary sessions, seminars and time allotted for asking questions.
