School of Theology

 

School of Theology is our introductory course to theology. It is perfect for anyone who would like to deepen their faith and understanding of the Bible, for those who have recently come to faith, or those who have been Christians for many years. Now celebrating its seventeenth year, School of Theology has been instrumental in driving forward SPTC’s vision to see theology at the heart of the church. Each year we welcome around 250 people on School of Theology at our centre in London.

If you live in London or the surrounding area, please keep reading. If you live elsewhere, take a look at School of Theology Streamed which is available for churches to run in their context.

 
School of Theology (London)

School of Theology is an 8 week course which runs in the Autumn and Spring, offering students a choice of three tracks - BibleTrack, FaithTrack or LifeTrack. It takes place on Thursday nights at HTB Courtfield Gardens, London SW5 0LX and starts with a hot meal from 6.30pm, followed by worship, the talk and group discussion. The evening finishes at 9pm with the option to stay on for hot chocolate and cake and to carry on the conversation. The first night of each term is an Open Evening which is a great opportunity to have a taster of the course.

If you are interested in volunteering at School of Theology, we have an opportunity to help on our Café team. Email sot@htb.org for more information.

Registration for 2019/20 School of Theology is now open.
