Belonging to NBC
As you'll see from our page Learning With Us, Northern Baptist College is a learning community comprising students on different training routes and courses. Some are based primarily at the St. Barnabas Theological Centre in Sheffield. Many others receive their teaching and training at Luther King House (LKH) in Manchester, the home base of NBC.
If you're coming to LKH here are some useful things to know:
First and foremost: meals! Food is served in the Luther King House dining room. Lunch is the main meal and is a great social time in the college. There are usually two hot meal options, as well as a salad bar and a vegetarian option. Desserts are also available. The breakfast is self-service with typical continental options available. Evening meals are also available, if students are staying over, although many often head out for a curry on the nearby curry mile.
There is a small bar that opens in the evening with a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The bar is just off the lounge, which is a good place to unwind after a full day of lectures, or after travelling. The lounge is also busy during the day with students socialising in between sessions.
Students can book rooms at preferential rate at Luther King House. The accommodation is of a decent standard, with en-suiteshower, television and kettle in every room.
The library is well-stocked and the staff are very helpful if there is something special you require. There are several computers available to students, as well as facilities for your own laptop. The library regularly introduces new books and has access to a number of journals, both in print and electronically. The library is not open 24 hours a day, but is usually open until 10.30pm, which is ideal for when those essay deadlines loom large!
