Who is TSL for?
For any Christians (aged 18 plus) who love God and are hungry to know Him more. It is for people who long to see the Kingdom of God break out wherever they go.
What are the session times?
TSL meets most Thursday evenings in term-time and includes some Saturdays.
On Thursday evenings we open doors at 7.00 pm for refreshments and we start at 7.30 pm. The evening finishes at 9.30 pm.
On Saturdays doors open at 9.30 am for refreshments and we start at 10.00 am. The day finishes around 4.00 pm.
When do I need to pay my course fees?
If you are offered a place on the course and wish to accept, there is a payment of £50 deposit due within 14 days to secure your place.
The full amount (minus your deposit) is to be paid by 1st October 2023.
However, if you find yourself in a position where it is difficult to pay the full amount by 1st October 2023 we are happy to accept monthly instalments from the date of your acceptance up to the end of November 2023.
Will I need to attend every session?
We are keen for students to attend as many sessions as possible so that they can get the most out of their year with us. Students do not have to attend every session to graduate, but an important aspect of our culture is communicating well when there is a good reason for absence.
Are numbers of places on the course limited?
Yes! So we would advise you to get your application in as soon as you are able to.
Can you explain the application process?
Once we have received your application form we will be in touch with you to arrange an interview slot. Our interviews are informal and last approximately 30 minutes. They are a great opportunity for us to get to know you and for you to ask any questions that you may have. This can take place in person or via Zoom or Facetime.
Will I be discipled or mentored over the year?
The School year is very much a discipleship journey. Being alongside other Christians of different ages and stages of life provides a rich experience for students while being equipped and empowered to be all God has called them to be and to do the things that Jesus did.
We have a great team who are excellent at getting alongside students throughout the year where needed. However there is no time to do this on a regular basis and so each student is asked to find a mentor for the year, preferably from their home church.
Are people able to visit the school?
Yes, we would love to meet you! There will be a Visitor Evening in the summer term. To arrange to visit simply fill out the form on our Visitors page. Our first three Saturday sessions are also Open conferences that everyone can book into. (See Day Conferences)
