This is a two-year non-accredited course that will take you through the basics of the Christian faith. It is suitable for both learners who have prior theological training and those who don’t. The experience and prior knowledge of the group will shape the level of the learning.
The aim of the course is to give you a foundational knowledge of key themes in Christianity – and, crucially, how to apply these themes in ministry at your local church. While studying at St. Edmund’s, students may choose to undergo the discernment process to become a Licensed Lay Minister (LLM) at the same time as their two years of study. Applications must be made no later than Easter of the second year, and the discernment process also may be undertaken prior to study.
The course in Christian Studies is designed to explore Christian theology and discover afresh its relevance for everyday life and ministry.
