These study days blend exegetical, historical, and systematic theology. They will help you to understand more deeply the implications of doctrine for individual and corporate Christian living. All the days are intended for pastors with a good level of theological understanding, but they are open to any men or women interested in learning theology for ministry.
The days cover both topics of enduring importance and matters of current controversy. Every study day is discrete, but sometimes we link these days to form a series.
Our current series of doctrine study days examines topics in covenant theology.
Our Director, Garry Williams, teaches our doctrine study days at London Seminary. He also teaches groups of pastors around the country, and runs study days in Belfast, Bradford-on-Avon, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Dagenham, Darlington, Derby, Dublin, Guildford, Kingston, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford, Warboys, and Wrexham.
The cost of a doctrine day is £32.50, which includes lunch if it is at London Seminary. If you are in full-time ministry and would like to attend a study day but would not come because of the cost, please contact us about the possibility of a bursary.
Please note that you must book your study day at least a week before it is due to occur. Bookings made after the booking deadline will cost £37.50, and you may not receive lunch or a hard copy of any handouts.

Doctrine study days usually begin at 9:30 with coffee and finish at 16:00, although timings may vary depending on the location.
The day was excellent, confirming the foundations and pushing on to new ground. Very useful and thoroughly enjoyable. The fellowship was good too.
It was genuinely useful, because we explored themes that affect and regulate so much week-by-week word ministry; and it was faith-building, because we took a step back and could see once again the magnificence of Christ in the depths of His word.
