Where is the school?

Who can apply?
The school is open to adult Christians from all denominations as we believe the supernatural lifestyle should be the ‘natural’ lifestyle for all Christians. Please see the application page.
Can I still be involved in my local church?
Yes, definitely. If you have specific responsibilities at your church that may affect school attendance or reading/homework please get in touch to discuss this.
What about childcare?
Sadly, we are unable to provide any childcare. Those with children would need to make their own arrangements.
What about accommodation and transport?
Each student is responsible for their own living expenses including housing and transport. Members of the church are sometimes able to offer a night’s accommodation to students who live some distance away.
What is the cost?
The school relies entirely on the students’ fees.
We offer a discounted rate for those aged 25 or under on 30th September 2021 of £750 for the full year.
The standard cost of the first year 2021-2022 is £950 if paid upfront in full.
There are other payment plans available, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
Can I work and attend the school?
The One Day a week format makes the ESSL Dayschool more accessible to those in work.
Our school is purposely called The Eastgate School of Spiritual Life. We believe that living a truly full spiritual life with the expectation of God moving miraculously is for all areas of our lives.
What about more Covid lockdowns or restrictions?
It’s our expectation that in 2021-22 we will be able to run school in the Eastgate building. During the last school year if there were local lockdowns or Tiers that did not affect the local Eastgate area, those who could still travel to the building did so, and others joined the school day via Zoom. When we had full lockdowns or Tiers that affected the Eastgate area we ran the full school curriculum entirely on Zoom.
