Theology programmes


When you take the time to grow strong roots in theology, you are better able to relate the truth of God’s Word to the questions of those around you, better able to teach and lead a church faithfully. 

We set high standards of excellence in our tutors and the teaching we offer, making sure that students grow holistically–academically, through practical ministry experiences, through leadership training, through the practice of spiritual disciplines, and by living within an intentional community with one another. We want to ensure to the best of our ability that you will be well prepared for the demanding and important work of service to Jesus Christ and his Church.

So whether you hope to train for ordination, to serve in mission or church leadership, or to deepen your Christian understanding and practice in your work and family life, this is the place to grapple with the Word of God and let the life-changing reality of his kingdom shape the whole of your life.
