Teesside School of Theology
Let me introduce you all to an exciting new Project that I have been involved in planning with a bunch of leaders from across Teesside. Theology for Everyone.
Cranmer Hall in Durham is a world class College offering Theological education and training to those wanting to go into ministry. They have approached the Church in Teesside to offer themselves to come out to us and do some accessible teaching on the theology and the bible. Sounds scary! It wont be. Its going to be amazing. There are a bunch of Saturdays over 2017 where we will be gathering at Stockton Parish Church and learning from a Leading Speaker!! This sort of training would usually cost hundreds of pounds however the college are amazing wanting to make this available to you for a small contribution to costs.
Here is all the info you need to get booked on.
What comes to mind with the word “Theology?” Boring? Academic? Dry? Elitist?
But “theology” is about God, the dynamic, surprising, and thrilling Creator who became flesh but will not sit still in a university library or in an academic classroom. “Theology” is rigorous thinking about the God who reveals himself not just to theologians, but to everyone who would seek him out.
Theology is for everyone.
We invite you to join a new venture sponsored by churches in Teesside and in partnership with Cranmer Hall, St John’s College at Durham University. Theology for Everyone is a series of lively presentations with interactive discussion about the exciting God who is revealed to us in Scripture. It is time for theology to explode out of the libraries and classrooms and spill out onto our city streets. Join us as we meet God afresh and seek to follow him in his mission.
