The vision of The HTB Group is the re-evangalisation of the nations, the revitilisation of the Church and the transformation of society. Each member of staff plays a key role in contributing to our vision. Our mission is bigger than any individual task but together our work contributes to the bigger picture.
St Paul’s Theological Centre (SPTC) is a constituent part of St Mellitus College (SMC) and one of the entities within Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB). SMC was formed in 2007 by the Bishops of London and Chelmsford, in partnership with SPTC and is widely thought to be one of the most innovative and exciting places to study theology and explore ministry. SMC’s vision is ‘hope-filled leaders, revitalised church, transformed world’ which it seeks to achieve by developing Christlike leaders through theology, formation and training at the heart of the church, in the context of prayer, worship, unity and mission, energised by the life of the Spirit.
The College has five centres across the UK – London, Chelmsford, the North West (Liverpool), the South West (Plymouth), and the East Midlands (Nottingham), and seeks to provide vibrant, innovative, and rigorous theological education through the delivery of non-residential, full-time and part-time training in theology and ministry at introductory, undergraduate and postgraduate level, preparing students for ordained, Reader (LLM) and lay ministries in the Church of England, and for leadership in other churches.
