Individual Subjects

We have now posted details of our revised modules on the Doctrines of God, Christ and the Scriptures, as well as on Acts and Leviticus – Hebrews. Why not register to study one of them? Many more to come, so watch this space.

Studying Individual Subjects

We are currently reformatting all our modules that can be studied via e-learning with EBC.

Over the next few weeks we will be adding to the list of online subjects and uploading them here, so keep tabs on that…

Reflecting these strange days we all currently live in, Kerstin commented, “I graduated today watching a YouTube video while doing the washing up in the kitchen. What a strange world we live in.”

EBC Library

EBC Virtual Classrooms

There’s still time to register for one of our new virtual classrooms which start next week. We have new modules on Practical Praying, the Doctrines of Christ, The Church and The Holy Spirit, and one on Apocalyptic Literature. Registration is necessary but very simple, and the cost works out at just £5 per hour of inspirational teaching.

Creation Matters

A reminder that next week, on Thursday 22nd April, we have a special online day seminar on Creation Matters, with Prof Steve Taylor of Liverpool University. This should be inspirational and informational and only costs £30 (registration required). You can register here

Could You Become a Friend of EBC?

Edinburgh Bible College has only been in existence for a relatively short time but already, in the Lord’s goodness, we have been privileged to equip students who are now serving in, among other places, Poland, USA, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as others who have just got to know their God and their Bibles better. Humanly speaking, none of this would have been possible without the prayerful and financial support of many people, and we are enormously grateful…

Are You Thinking About Studying And Training?

This past week we were delighted to welcome Rebekah (not in this picture) as our first new student for the 2021-2022 College year and are currently in conversation with several other potential students. If you – or someone you know – is thinking about some form of study and training, why not get in touch? We would be glad to explore options with you, and remember that two of our core values are FLEXIBILITY and ACCESSIBILITY.
