The C.S. Lewis Institute in Belfast is devoted to developing disciples who can articulate, defend, share and live faith in Christ in public and personal life; we are an extension of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Washington D.C., which began in 1976 and stresses discipleship of mind and the heart.  The Institute works in partnership with local churches and ministries to help believers glorify God by becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ who impact the spheres of influence to which God has called them.  This discipleship occurs through:

  • The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program, an intensive mentoring/discipleship program that focuses on spiritual and theological growth.
  • Apologetics and Discipleship Seminars, through which world respected authors and speakers instruct and encourage participants about important aspects of life in the Kingdom of God.
  • Knowing & Doing, a quarterly publication with challenging articles, interviews, and reviews designed to nurture discipleship of heart and mind.
  • Informal gatherings, where the important issues of the day and of personal life can be explored from the perspective of biblical orthodoxy.


The C.S. Lewis Institute was established in Belfast in 2016 and continues to seek like-minded and like-hearted men and women to join the Fellows Programme in the Belfast area.  Whilst based in Belfast, applications are welcome from across Northern Ireland.  If you feel called to be part of the discipleship movement in the homeland of Lewis, please contact us using the information below.  For more information, please see CSLI-Belfast brochure.
