Join the debate by becoming a Theos Friend

You can participate in the debate about the role of Christianity and religion in society by joining the Friends Programme.

You can help shape the conversation the cultural leaders and influencers hear and show that Christianity and religion are part of the solution for a better society.

As a member of the Friends Programme, you receive all our published reports and stay connected with our upcoming thought pieces and ideas throughout the year.
You have access to all our events for free and can pre-book them before we make them available to the public.
You are also invited to private functions with the team and other Friends of Theos.
You will become involved with the leading Christian organisation and engage with the influencers about religion's place in the public square.
In the past ten years, Theos has produced over 50 reports that have amassed a total distribution of over 200 million through our channels in print, radio, TV, and social media. We are consistently quoted and asked to contribute to the Financial Times, The Economist, The Guardian, The Times, and The Telegraph to name just a few. We also are invited to speak on the BBC, Sky News and BBC World Services.

“Theos is a body that commands attention,” says The Economist.

Julian Baggini, the influential atheist philosopher, says, "Theos provides rare proof that theology can be interesting and relevant even - perhaps especially - for those who do not believe."
Below you will find the four levels of engagement we offer. We hope you can join us in changing the public opinion on faith and religion.
You can get involved in the following four levels
