Abstract

The Adelaide Theological Circle was an interdenominational group that holds an unpublicised but notable place in the modern religious history of South Australia. The circle was founded in 1924 by Edward Sidney Kiek, principal of Parkin College, the Congregational Church's theological college, and Alfred Depledge Sykes, an Anglican clergyman and former Congregational minister. Their object was to create a forum in which an invited group of scholarly clergy of diverse outlooks, representing every major denomination, could freely discuss theological issues, especially those that were most prominent in contemporary thought.
