My New Job: Librarian at Spurgeon’s College

A new year often brings changes for all of us. If you have been following Theology on the Web on social media you will know that I will be made redundant from my current job at the end of December. This Christmas we are praising God that He has provided me with a wonderful new opportunity for service and ministry. As of the beginning of January 2020 I will be taking up the position of Librarian at Spurgeon’s College in South London.

Thank you for all your prayers – and please continue to pray for me in this very challenging and exciting role.

Finding Theology on the Web on Social Media

Social Media logos

Theology on the Web now hosts over 40,000 theological articles and hundreds of books, with many more being added each week. Besides the site blogs (listed below), there are a number of other ways to keep up to date with the latest material going on-line.

Site Blogs



Theology on the Web already has an extensive Facebook presence. You can “like” its Page, which has new material posted to it at least three times a week. If you are interested in having more input as to how Theology on the Web works, you can apply to join the closed Theology on the Web Group. There you will receive the same updates, but also occasionally be asked to contribute to surveys, help answer questions and provide feedback. Please take note: if you want to join the Group just so you can share your revelation of the seating plan for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, please don’t…


Twitter logo

Posts to Twitter are made around three times a week, but sometimes more often if something worth sharing in the way of resources catches my attention.


Instagram logo

I tend to use Instagram when I am out and about, or when I have an interesting image to share about a forthcoming book or journal. Posts are therefore occasional and are also shared on Twitter.


You Tube Channel

Theology on the Web has its own YouTube Channel where you will find tutorials and some video updates. Remember to subscribe to get a notification when new material is posted.


Mailchimp Newsletter

I use Mailchimp to send out an occasional Newsletter whenever I have enough significant material to share. You can use the form in the right hand sidebar to subscribe.
