OUR MORNING SPEAKER 7th-9th July 2021 

Dr Chris Sinkinson

Lecturer in Biblical & Theological Studies at Moorlands College



Chris originally studied Philosophy and English before going on to complete an MA and PhD in Theology. His PhD was on Christian responses to the World Religions and, the theology of John Harwood Hick who was a renowned British born philosopher of religion and theologian.

Chris also has a great interest in archaeology and the Bible. He has been involved in the Bethsaida Excavations Project in the Galilee and published in this area. His interest in apologetics motivates much of his study in areas related to the historicity of the Bible and contemporary culture.

Having been the senior pastor of Alderholt Chapel in Dorset for over ten years, Chris now lectures for BA and MA students at Moorlands College at Christchurch, Dorset, in Old Testament Studies and Apologetics and regularly leads student tours to Israel as a sort of modern day “Indiana Jones”.

Chris’ presentations include fascinating recollections of some exciting excavations he’s been a part of, along with why the Bible is so important to Him. He writes a monthly column for Evangelicals Now and has authored a number of books relevant to biblical archaeology and defending the faith and answering criticism. His current research interests are in the archaeology of the Galilee on which he continues to write and be involved in fieldwork.

Chris is married to Ros, herself a Youth and Community worker in a local church. Together they have two children and a West Highland Terrier. Chris speaks at both local churches and national events.
