school of theology
To study theology is to study God, not for the sake of information but for transformation. When we study His Word in humility He comes to form Himself in us so that our lives can support the message that we bring.
The School of Theology exists to create opportunities for theological engagement; both through informal courses and formal academic programmes. We aim to develop ministers, thinkers, worshippers and scholars with the competence, character and courage to be faithful stewards of God’s Word in the Church and the world.
