Members and friends of CLIS will be taking part in a visit to the library of the London School of Theology, Green Lane, Northwood, London, HA6 2UW,  on Thursday 8 September 2016, from  2.30. p.m.

          LST’s large library is housed in the former chapel and holds over 50,000 volumes.   It is recognised as one of the best specialist theological libraries in the UK.  The periodicals room has archives of many theological journals many of which are being made available on-line to staff and students.  There is a separate music library with music books, hymnals and sheet music.

          Originally founded as the London Bible College, LST was launched in the middle of World War II with a vision for an inter-denominational evangelical college that would provide an alternative to the prevailing liberal theology of the day and prepare students to interact with the post-war world.

          Originally based in central London, the College moved to its present Northwood site in 1970 and adopted its present name in 2004.

Travel directions to the LST can be found at   The College  is thirty minutes northwest of central London on  the London Underground and within easy reach of the M1, M40 and M25 motorways.  For those coming vis the  Underground,   Northwood is on the Watford branch of the Metropolitan line.

          It is hoped that those who can arrive in Northwood in time will be able to have lunch together prior to the afternoon visit  in a local restaurant from about 12.15.

          If you would like to book a place or places on the visit, and/or for lunch, please contact Robert Foster, E-mail [email protected]
