Your Gateway to a deeper engagement with Bible, theology and contemporary issues

…because theology is for everyone!

What We Do

GTS runs courses and events that help Christians become more confident in their faith. Our courses will help you engage more deeply with biblical, theological, and contemporary issues. We encourage participants to think, discuss, learn and reflect together. We believe that learning more about the nature of God’s relationship with his world transforms us and increases our desire to become more like Him, and to share God’s love and compassion for a hurting world.

How it Works

Our courses are delivered in two modes: On Site and Online.  On Site is ideal for groups that already enjoy a relationship together through a church or other means, and have an adequate venue for teaching and discussion – anywhere in the Gloucestershire region.  Online is ideal for bringing people together who are not already in the same location.  Gateway Online courses are either run as Zoom sessions, or (for a few specified courses) in a new interactive format which combines individual online engagement with group sessions (via Zoom or on site).

Our Vision

500 years ago, the great Renaissance scholar, Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536) wrote:

‘Only a very few can be learned,
but all can be Christian,
all can be devout,
and – I shall boldly add –
all can be theologians.’

At GTS, we still believe this today! Theology is not just for academics and scholars.  It’s not primarily something we learn, but something we DO. Together – as God’s people.
