Autumn 2021 Update
16 July 2021
Because of the continued rise of COVID-19 within the UK, we will require those who are applying for the Autumn term to receive at least one dose of their vaccine before arriving to the training, unless you have a valid health exemption corroborated by a doctor’s letter. If it is not possible for you to receive your vaccinations before arriving, we will ask you to schedule an appointment after registering with the local medical center once in the UK.

We are full of thanksgiving to the Lord for His blessing upon the Training over the last year despite the world situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We look to Him for His covering and expect His blessing upon the Training as we continue into the Autumn 2021 term.
The Training in London has been carried out in person at Bower House over the last two terms. At the start of the Spring 2021 term, trainees were tested and quarantined. Social distancing measures and COVID testing have been put in place, which allowed for FTTL serving ones and teaching brothers to come in person. We are thankful to the Lord for guarding the health of all the trainees and serving ones throughout this time.
While we continue to monitor the situation related to the pandemic, we expect to have the coming term in person. The Autumn 2021 term will begin on Monday, 16 August; however, returning and incoming trainees, especially those from outside the UK should anticipate the need to travel earlier to complete a quarantine period. Quarantine and arrival information will be provided to trainees closer to the start of term.
We thank the Lord and all the saints for the continual prayers regarding all aspects of the Training.
