The New Testament Church of God celebrates February as Education Month throughout our churches.
Here at WNTCG we would like to encourage everyone to spend some time during the month of February to focus on learning something new or different.
Education comes in many different ways, sources and methods and it is up to you as an individual and a member of a group or family to decide. One thing is for sure, learning together can be fun.

What is the purpose of the Annual lectures?
The Oliver Lyseight Annual Lectures commenced in 2008 in commemoration of our founding Administrative Bishop, Rev Dr Oliver Lyseight.
To date they have been delivered in a series of five lectures with the over arching motto of Augustine and Anselm of Canterbury: Fides quaerens intellectum or pilgrims of "faith seeking understanding" or "faith seeking intelligence'.
In 2018-2022 the series is focusing on the contribution women continue to make to the life and witness of the Church under the banner of ‘Womanhood in Christian Faith Communities.
Who was Oliver Lyseight?
Rev Dr Oliver Lyseight was the founding leader of the NTCG in England.
