The McDonald Centre for Theology, Ethics & Public Life is a research institute in the University of Oxford, which is associated with the Faculty of Theology and Christ Church. Its director is Nigel Biggar, Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology. The current McDonald Fellow for Christian Ethics & Public Life is John Perry.

The Centre supports advanced research on the contribution of Christian traditions to the understanding of moral life in conversation, at once charitable and candid, with other traditions of religious and philosophical thought. It fosters collaboration both between theology and other disciplines, and between academia and those who shape public deliberation and policy. In publishing the research that it supports, the Centre addresses academic, church, and wider public audiences.
