Who are we?
Leeds School of Theology (LSoT) is an informal theological school which will help you think theologically, pursue a theology that leads to love, honour God's word and his church and love God with your whole self. LSoT is open to all and is an exciting opportunity for anyone wanting to gain a greater knowledge of God, Scripture and theology. Our courses will equip, empower and inspire you to read, study and apply God’s Word in a deeper and life transforming way.
This course equips students with a 'Foundation in Christian Theology'. The topics we cover include healthy hermeneutics, the doctrine of the church, Old Testament and New Testament surveys, the doctrine of God, Christology, the Spirit and much more. The content is taught by theologians who are both high level academics and missional practitioners. This creates a rigorous and practical learning environment.
Our student community is beautifully diverse. We draw students from more than 50 different local churches, meaning students have an invaluable opportunity to learn from others as well as from the teachers. Running over 20 Monday evening sessions this course is perfect for those wanting to do deeper in their understanding of God and Scripture in the midst of a busy life.
The course runs during academic term time only with breaks for half terms, Christmas and Easter. For the 2020/2021 course the Nightschool teaching is being live-streamed via Zoom meaning you can access this course from the comfort and saftey of your own home. The course costs £300 for the year.

LSoT Mission, Theology and Ministry for the Margins Course:
LSoT are excited to continue our partnership with Lighthouse West Yorkshire to facilitate a dynamic learning community which will serve Christians already working alongside the marginalised or having a heart to pioneer in this area. Lighthouse is a fresh expression of church that serves adults with multiple and complex needs including poverty, mental health, homelessness, trauma and addiction.
The course, delivered through 10 Monday evening sessions over the course of a year, will include passionate teaching from the Lighthouse team which fuses together biblical studies, theological reflection, interviews with people who have lived experience and cutting edge research on addiction and trauma to inspire and equip the church to engage with those on the margins in a way that looks and loves like Jesus.
The 2020/2021 course costs £205 and will be delivered online due to Covid-19. This course is being offered to those based in Leeds and also to those based nationwide.
