School of Theology

Equipping the church to change the world

Trinity Cheltenham is delighted to be hosting a series of short theological courses in partnership with St Paul’s Theological Centre (based out of Holy Trinity Brompton, London). The School of Theology for Autumn 2015 will be delivering two 8 week courses with some of the best thinkers and communicators of the Christian faith today.

The School of Theology runs on a Monday evening from 7.30 – 9.45pm at the Trinity campus. Each week incorporates worship, teaching and group discussion. You do not need to be a member of Trinity Cheltenham to attend the School of Theology – all are welcome. The cost of a term is £120, however an Early Bird rate of £100 is available if you book your place before 31st August! Student and OAP rates also available – please contact us for more information.

Autumn Term

Book on to either Bible Track 1 or Life Track 3 of the Autumn Term, starting October 5th 2015.

The Bible is an inexhaustible source of God’s grace to us – but, even with careful reading and the help of the Holy Spirit, it can sometimes seem a bit daunting. This Bible Track combines thoughtful analysis with accessible explanation, to provide a helpful introduction for students who want a general overview of the Bible. No previous study required!

We want to share the Good News with others – but most of us feel inadequate to do so. This (highly practical) Track reviews the theology and practice of Apologetics (explaining the reasons behind our faith); and unpacks some of the key challenges involved in doing this in our changing culture.
