Welcome to the Church Times Festival of Faith & Literature

Our mission is to encourage a love of literature as it relates to faith, and to create a thoughtful and relaxing space in which to consider works of literature and their religious and moral themes. It's for anyone who is interested in the big questions of life.


Save the date for the 2023 festival!

Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2023

We are delighted to announce that the Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature will return as an in-person event next February.

For 2023 the festival finds a new home in Winchester, with events taking place in the University of Winchester and Winchester Cathedral.

We will be joined by a number of wonderful speakers, including Rowan Williams, Suzannah Lipscomb, Francis Spufford and many others.

The full programme will be announced and tickets will be available in September.
