Future Life

We live with constant change!

Patterns of church life in this country are in a state of flux. We are aware of the challenge of seeking to respond to many new opportunities for mission while often having to live with fewer resources, and in the midst of this we know that the future needs for ministerial education and formation will not stay the same.

Patterns of higher education in this country are always shifting. The introduction of tuition fees has changed the landscape very significantly, and there is little certainly as to what Government policy will look like in the future. We constantly have to adapt while always endeavouring to maintain our core values.

Luther King House is used to living with the challenges and uncertainties that come with such change. Throughout our history, we have risked following the call of God into the unknown, often living on the edge, often pioneering new ways of serving and equipping the people of God.

Now is no different! So we are taking time to review our life together as a federation of theological colleges, and to ask questions about what our future might look like. We want to explore where God is calling us to go, how we can continue to serve the mission of our churches, and what it might mean to equip women and men for future ministry. LKH is a strong institution, and our continuing strength depends on responding faithfully to new opportunities and new directions.

It is a process that will take us two or three years – and during the course of that time we will want all who are part of the LKH wider community to share in this process of discernment. Do look out for these opportunities, and we will try to make sure we stay in touch.
