The course is delivered to local groups in thirty sessions of two hours. Local groups are being planned based on demand and groups need to have a minimum of 8 people attending, therefore if you are thinking of attending one of the above please register your interest as soon as possible so that we are aware of the demand.
Term 1 Exploring Faith
Sessions include an opportunity to consider our own faith journeys and an introduction to Theological Reflection.
Term 2 God’s Call and Our Response
Sessions include an introduction to the Old Testament
Term 3 Development of the Church
Sessions include an introduction to the New Testament and Church Doctrine - what we say we believe.
Running through all 3 terms will be evenings entitled Ministry, Mission and Vocation when we will consider how we discern our gifts, hearing God’s call and making our response to God.
Folders of study material will be provided. Written work (or equivalent) is not obligatory but there will be the option of completing one small project or essay each term. For those wanting to progress to further study we will ask for a least one essay in the course of the year. The total cost of the course will be £120.
