The Senate of Serampore College runs an Extension Theological Education programme through Senate Centre for Extension and Pastoral Theological Research (SCEPTRE), located at the heart of Kolkata city, West Bengal. Our primary aim is to train the people of God WHO COULD NOT JOIN RESIDENTIAL THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION due to various reasons and reach them in their situation and context.

We are committed to WHOLISTIC, ECUMENICAL AND LIBERATIVE THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION to meet the growing needs of God’s people in India and abroad. We emphasize VERNACULAR THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION and encourage people to LEARN THEOLOGY IN THE LANGUAGE MOST DEAR TO THEM.

Our slogan is to TAKE THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION TO PEOPLE and provide them with the tools, materials and orientation so that they may learn theology by themselves.
