Your Giving: 80 for 80

In 2023, London School of Theology (formerly known as London Bible College) turned 80 – since 1943 we’ve had the privilege of being able to form thousands of lives for service across the globe.

Each year, London School of Theology awards well over £80,000 in scholarships and bursaries to help prepare and empower disciples of Jesus, both in the UK and across the world, for life, ministry and the marketplace. We educate individuals, we equip the church and we engage in ground-breaking research.

We need your help to equip the next generation of church leaders, teachers, scholars, counsellors, worship leaders, lawyers, curators… those who will raise their voices for Christ in their chosen vocations.

Unless specified, your donations will be allocated to our general, 80 for 80 fund. However, when you donate – you can inform us if there is a specific fund you would like to support, they are:

  • Hardship fund
  • Music bursary
  • Counselling (for Theology and Counselling Students)
  • Alumni fund
  • Building fund

Diana's story

Diana is a second year international student on our BA Theology & Counselling programme. Thanks to financial support from LST, Diana’s dream to study this course has become a reality. 

I have a real missionary heart to reach people not only with the gospel, but also with the skills I’m learning to help people reach healing, and a life with purpose in this broken world. As part of my online research for Christian universities that offer counselling, I came across LST, which offers precisely the two-in-one degree that I was looking for. It really couldn’t have been any better!

Initially, financial constraints put my decision to study at LST under threat; but with the gracious support of LST, I’ve been able to make this dream a reality. God has really used this support to confirm that this is the right journey for me to take. I don’t think I could have made it here without such support.

I’m still praying to God about what exactly I will be doing once I finish my degree. But my current prayers are about supporting missionaries coming back from the mission field, working in rehabilitation prisons, or even working in prisons. Whatever I end up doing, for me it’s not just been about the academia (which I do value very highly!), but also the valuable relationships built and the broad support received to make our journeys and our careers successful.

Could you help shape our future generation of leaders?

We thank God for 80 years of London School of Theology – Could you be part of LST’s journey for the next 80 years? With your partnership we can continue to form disciples, resource churches and impact society for generations to come!
