About the event
Join us for a 5-week series, with some world-class speakers, desigined to equip you to speak into culture today in a relevant, compassionate and -Spirit-filled way!
In 2016, we launched the School of Evangelism which ran successfully for three years with over 100 students graduating. We aim to run the school again in autumn 2023, and this short course is an ideal opportunity to dip your toe into the world of apologetics, to have a refresher for your previous training, or to use as a taster before committing to the School of Evangelism.
