Beer and Theology Cambridge (@BeerTheologyCam) was founded in October 2020 as an informal seminar. We have two items on the agenda: drink beer (or another preference); discuss theology.

It is co-sponsored by Fulcrum and the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide and is a branch of the original Beer and Theology London, the details of which are here.

It is open to all. Just turn up.
