The North-East London Hub, based at All Saints, Woodford Wells has been running since 2012. It is growing at a tremendous rate demonstrating the real demand for high quality, part-time education in the context of a Spirit-led community that can be balanced with the many demands of city life. The Hub makes use of the amazing facilities provided by a brand new extension specifically designed for church-based theological training. The good road and rail networks bring WTC courses within reach of most of London, Essex, and as far afield as Cambridge.
We are delighted that our courses are one of the many ways that we can work with All Saints and other churches in the region to fulfil their vision to see Jesus at the centre of every life, marriage, family, workplace, community and nation.
The NE London Hub meets on a Tuesday evening between 6 and 10pm.
Sam Pollard is our North-East London Hub Director. Sam lives in Loughton with his young family and worships at St Mary’s Church where he is also the Associate Vicar. He juggles these two roles with his life as a PhD student at the University of Bristol where he is researching into the role of the Spirit in Christian Leadership. He has a heart to make new, and develop more mature, disciples through the ministry of both the Word and the Spirit, in order to see the Kingdom of God established in the UK. He sees his role as a Hub Director as an ideal way to work out his vision to release people into every sphere of society with a confidence which is developed through the work of the Spirit and good theological education. In his spare time, Sam loves to play the guitar, cycle and hang out with friends.
