The Gerald Coates Archive

A digitised collection of material from the archive of Gerald Coates, the eminent house church movement leader and founder of the ‘Pioneer’ apostolic network. The material here is presently held by the Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion at the University of Birmingham. It has been put into the public domain for the use of scholars and anyone else with an interest in Gerald Coates’ life and work and the development of non-religious Christianity in the UK, with Gerald’s permission.

The digital archive at present comprises issues of journals from the early years of the UK new church movement which Gerald Coates edited or wrote for. Additional material will be uploaded over time.
