For a couple of years, WTC has been in conversation with leaders of Reach church and Synergy, the wider family of churches to which Reach belongs, about establishing a WTC Hub in the East Midlands.

We are very excited to start this Hub in September 2021, located at the Riverside Centre. The conference centre is easily accessible by road and rail, being about 10 minutes walk from Derby rail station and just off the A52. The buildings are accessible for disabled people. There are multiple rooms which will be used as classrooms, a worship space and a WTC library.

Hub Director:

Sean Dooley

I’m originally from South Africa but have lived and ministered in the UK for 21 years. I’m full-time on the team at Reach and have been in pastoral church ministry since 1985. I did all my studying through distance learning and so I know what it’s like to study around my other commitments! I love WTC’s theology, deeply rooted in the Word of God, and I love the breadth of Kingdom Theology – theology that impacts every facet of life, bringing God’s will and His ways to all we do.

At the East Midlands Hub we will have a brand-new facility as we are remodelling our buildings. Add to that high-quality theological study, the power of the Holy Spirit and a community of Christians learning together and you have a powerful and motivating mix.

If you are interested at all in studying with WTC in the East Midlands, I’d love to meet up and have a chat.
