Ephesians 4:12 "...to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up..."
This verse was the driving force behind the inception of our Worship & Leadership Academy - a desire to see Christians from within Bethel and beyond trained and equipped to serve God more fully in whatever capacity He was calling them to.
From the early months of meeting fortnightly with a small group going through some of the basics of the Old and New Testament, God has continued to bless the academy over the last six years. Now well over 300 people have accessed training from one day seminars to full time degree level theology courses and a number are in full time ministry across the UK.
WLA now facilitates two formal streams of learning in 'Hands On', a once a month missionally led course and also a full-time BA (Hons) Theology degree through ForMission College. Recently WLA has had the pleasure of supporting weekend events with the evangelist Barry Woodward and also Tania Harris. 2018 will see the return of Barry Woodward, plus an exciting disciple making seminar with Bill Hull from the Bonhoeffer project.
