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 center 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.
