WTC Official Statement on Coronavirus:
In response to the coronavirus, WTC Hub nights, teaching, meetings, and communications events have all moved online. While we understand that this means students will have to be physically distanced from one another, we’re doing all we can to retain our sense of community and closeness through other means. Thankfully, we are well placed to do this with our already established systems of relating on Google Hangouts and other video conferencing platforms.

WTC will continue to function fully, albeit online, in terms of all the delivery of our teaching. This means that we will continue to provide all our courses online for as long as is needed and have already made contingency plans for the next academic year should this go on longer than we hope.

We are fully confident that learning with WTC will continue to be a relational, rich, and rewarding experience and are welcoming applications for the next academic year.

Please get in touch with your nearest Hub Director or the WTC office team (Phone: 0300 040 6200) if you have any questions.

FREE Online Theology Courses:
Two free online theology courses are now open for enrolment: Living The Christian Story and Spiritually Formed. Both courses provide high-quality academic content at a very accessible level and are designed for those without prior theological education. The first weeks of each course will be made available from Wednesday 3 April and new content will go live weekly from there. For more information and to register for these courses, click the relevant image below:

LIVING THE CHRISTIAN STORY: The premise of this module is that an enriched and engaged Christian life depends on engagement with the riches of the Christian story, a story told in the Old and New Testaments, and in the life of the early Church. This module explores that Christian story and then considers several ways that Christians can creatively and meaningfully live out that story in their everyday context.
SPIRITUALLY FORMED is a six-week study of biblical and theological pathways for spiritual formation, designed for individual and group use. The goal of this course is to provide high-quality academic content at a very accessible level. Spiritually Formed is designed for anyone, from those without prior theological education to those who want to go further in their journey of following Jesus.
