Westminster Theological Centre


In light of the latest COVID-19 restrictions, we continue to follow and apply Government guidance. It remains our top priority to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff during this pandemic, and to ensure our students are kept informed.

Teaching has been delivered online since the beginning of the pandemic. This has worked well in the past few months, with our already established systems of relating on Zoom and other video conferencing platforms. As soon as government guidance means we can meet together in larger groups we are ready to deliver our teaching in person again.

We are currently planning for an in-person residential in September hosted at the University of Nottingham and for in-person Hub nights to resume at the beginning of the Semester, subject to government guidelines.

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 the Hub Director or Contact Us if you have any questions.

Ashburnham Place is delighted to be working in partnership with Westminster Theological Centre (WTC) to deliver world-class, university accredited, theological education in the heart of East Sussex.

At WTC we reimagine learning in community, seeing lives transformed through life-giving theology in the presence and power of the Spirit and partnering with the church to equip and send the whole people of God.

Studying at WTC

WTC offers validated degrees in ‘Kingdom Theology’ because at the heart of our study is the belief that Jesus came proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God.

All courses are part-time to fit around busy lifestyles and work, and are validated by the University of Chester. They are delivered in partnership with local churches and Ashburnham Place.

The East Sussex Hub meets on Tuesday evenings at Ashburnham Place between 6 and 10 pm. Each Hub session starts with worship before splitting into study groups for lectures, live faculty tutorials and local extra-curricular input. Find out more at: East Sussex Hub

Our church weekend was the best we have had for years. The location, the facilities and the staff were outstanding. We can't wait to come back next year.
