Hampshire Hub
“All good theology has to be rooted in action where people are. WTC provides an opportunity for people to think theologically about their calling to serve God in their workplaces and local communities.”
Revd Canon Brian Wakelin
Assistant Minister, Christ Church, Winchester

The Hampshire Hub began in 2009 and today it is a large thriving Hub based at Christ Church in Winchester. The Hub is equipped with great facilities for our students to use. Our heart is to see that every Christian in this region has access to quality theological education whilst remaining in their existing life space. Students in our Hub are from multiple streams and denominations and of varying ages, socio-economic groups and backgrounds all coming together to learn in the context of a missional, worshipping community.

We see our students being equipped to be fully who they are and to fully engage with their calling, while moving into a deeper and more purposeful intimacy with Jesus is what makes us excited. We work with real questions and real life challenges, but wisdom from the Holy Spirit and theological rigour is a dynamic combination that is life-changing.

The Hampshire Hub meets on Monday evenings between 6pm and 10pm.

Hub Director:

Rich Lush

Hi, I am Rich, Hub Director for Hampshire. I’ve always been passionate about the local church and grew up as part of Arun Community Church in Littlehampton. As a church we had a strong emphasis on the worship and the spirit and I loved growing up in the 90’s engaging in all that God was doing.

I started my journey with WTC by studying the Graduate Diploma after wanting to know the Bible beyond a surface level. I’m now doing my MA with WTC. The experience has been life changing and it’s now my great privilege to be a part of the team that gets to facilitate such an amazing resource, in a way that I am deeply passionate about – combining deep theology with a desire for living and active encounter with Jesus.

I’d love to have a chat with you if you’re thinking about studying or would just like to know a bit more.
