How Does WTC Serve Church Leaders?
WTC’s vision is to serve the local church.

We do this by partnering with church leaders and networks around the UK to deliver life-giving theology in the presence and power of the Spirit, to equip and send the whole people of God.

Our closest partnerships are with our Hubs.

Our Hub churches and Ashburnham Place are at the core of WTC and how it functions. As well as serving as the location for a WTC Hub where all our students from that region gather weekly, the Hub partners act as advocates and champions of WTC within their churches/centres, among their networks, and in the area. Each of our Hubs brings something unique to the makeup of WTC, and at the heart of the partnership is a shared vision for educating and training the church, resourcing a region, and building up the body of Christ.

Our partnerships are rooted in friendship and shared values.

We see our collective task as building Kingdom initiatives and ministries through and with the local church, and we have the enjoyment of working together to make this happen.

One of the great advantages for churches is that all our programmes are part-time, so our students can learn around their other commitments and stay rooted in their churches throughout their studies.

There are multiple ways in which partnering with WTC benefits a church, centre, or group of churches that act as the Hub. Firstly, it puts education and training for all at the heart of church and helps to build a culture where every member of the church is able to access life-giving theology; this equips everyone who studies with greater confidence for mission and discipleship. Secondly, it gives those in leadership the opportunity to train their upcoming church leaders in a context that will strengthen their faith, build their knowledge, and equip them with skills for leadership, teaching, and training others. Thirdly, it enables churches with the vision to be resourcing churches for their regions.
