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. It is useful for small group leaders, pastors and anyone wanting to grow their faith and develop as disciples of Jesus Christ.

If you live in London or the surrounding area, please keep reading. If you live elsewhere, take a look at our Partners to see if there is a School of Theology course near you. If you would like to run it yourself, visit Alpha Shop to buy the DVD box sets, or email us to find out how to become a partner.

 
School of Theology (London)

Now celebrating its sixteenth 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 center in London. It is a great time of worship, learning, and community. School of Theology takes place on Thursday nights at HTB Courtfield Gardens, London Sw5 0LX. It 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. School of Theology is ideal both for those who have recently come to faith, or those who have been Christians for many years. 

School of theology is an 8 week course (with a half term break) and an Open Evening which is a great opportunity for you to bring along a friend. It runs twice a year with an Autumn and a Spring Term which offer two Tracks to choose from. For more information about the course, please visit our FAQ page.

Registration for Spring 2017 is now open.
