Open Door Day @ EBC

If you’re thinking of studying or preparing for some form of ministry, then why not come to our 2020 Open Door Day @ EBC on Thursday 6th February?  You can sit in on lectures, talk to students and staff, and get answers to your questions.  Free refreshments and light lunch provided.  You can register by completing the form below.   You can also use the form to ask any questions you might have.

Another Good Day at EBC

At EBC, our teaching is done by those whom we describe as Practitioners rather than Professionals. In other words, we recruit pastors, evangelists and other Christian workers who are actively involved in gospel work and can model passionate ministry to our students. We’re delighted that Rev Kieran Banks of Dedridge Baptist Church, Livingston, is one of our team, and this morning has been teaching Romans to some of our students.

A great start to the new session

We have just finished our first full week of the new session and have so much to be thankful for and encouraged by. We have 22 students now studying different courses with us onsite and another dozen or so doing online courses. God is so good!   Yesterday, for the first time, we had three classes running at the same time. The pictures show our Principal, John Brand, teaching Doctrine of Scripture to one group, while Heather Holdsworth teaches another…

Practical Evangelism

It was great to have Joe Brown, an EBC Graduate, come back to teach some of our students a module in practical evangelism on Wednesday.

The New Session Starts with Record Numbers

What a great first full day of the new College year! More students onsite than we have ever had on one day at EBC. There’s room for more, so why not come and join us. Here are just some of the students with us today as we teach Spiritual Disciplines, Romans and Anthropology.

EBC Fleeces

EBC zipped fleeces are now available in a choice of 6 colours and priced at around £20.  If you would be interested in one please contact us.

Our New Librarian

We are delighted to welcome Valerie Robertson to the EBC team as our part-time Librarian. Valerie, a member of Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh, has worked in various libraries, mainly in education.

Our Autumn Programme Is Now Available

We are delighted to be releasing details of our Autumn programme of classes which starts at the end of September.  ANYONE can come to ANY publicised classes at EBC and full details are now available here.  If you have an questions, please do get in touch with us via the contact page.

New Applications

At our Staff Meeting this morning we were considering applications and planning interviews for new students for September. It’s still not too late. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in studying at EBC – full or part time, do get in touch.

2019 Graduation Celebration

We had a great Graduation Celebration on Friday evening and more than one person testified to there being a tangible sense of the Lord’s presence with us. Congratulations to Joshua Truesdale who graduated with a well earned Diploma in Applied Theology (with merit).

EBC in Poland

Please pray for two key elements of follow up to our Principal’s recent ministry in Poland. First, please pray for the many people who are watching the videos of Saturday’s seminar on the Overview of the Old Testament. You can find them all here or here, on the website of the Evangelical Church in Warsaw that hosted the conference. Astonishingly, the first one has already been viewed almost 8,000 times, and the others are being viewed frequently as they are…

The Bible in a Day

The Bible in a Day seminar, written and presented by EBC’s Principal, Rev John Brand, has been well received in a number of churches in the UK. The seminar is designed to give you a good grasp of the whole Bible, identifying the unifying theme of the Scriptures and seeing how all the various parts interconnect.  It is interactive, with lots of opportunity for questions and discussion, and full notes and a folder are supplied to all who attend.  You…

Train up a Child…..

The training up of children in the ways of the Lord must, surely, be one of the most important responsibilities given to us as parents and churches, and never was there a day when the challenge was greater.   This seminar is designed to encourage and equip parents, teachers, Sunday School workers, and all concerned for the spiritual well-being of children. It is led by Heather Holdsworth, a member of Carrubbers Christian Centre in Edinburgh, who has a wealth of…
