German-British relations and the developing Evangelical AllianceThis article considers the impact of the holiness movement, kick-started at confer-ences held in the English towns of Oxford (1874), Brighton (1975) and Keswick (1876), on the developing international evangelical network. The focus is on British, Irish and German evangelicals who overcame national and denominational barriers to share plat-forms and fellowship with one another and so give practical expression to the motto of the Evangelical Alliance: ,All One in Christʻ. Particular attention is given to those be-lievers from the British Isles, clergy and laity, Anglicans and Free Church brethren, who contributed to the proceedings at the Bad Blankenburg Conference in Thuringia. Bad Blankenburg was often just one stepping stone to further evangelistic and teaching min-istries elsewhere in Germany. A premillennialist eschatology which emphasised the significance of Israel in the end-times was a significant element in all these activities.
