What is the course about?
A York School of Ministry course designed to help you learn more about the great themes of Christian faith and practice.
Over ten, weekly, sessions, we’ll explore our beliefs about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Church, considering how these influence our relationships with others as well discovering how what we believe has a profound impact on our own spiritual journey.
Who is the course for?
The course would suit anyone who has little or no formal theological training. No academic qualifications are required, just enthusiasm and a willingness to contribute to group discussion.
It would be suitable for Recognised Parish Assistants, wishing to continue their learning and development, as a taster for people considering future academic study, or simply for those wishing to explore their faith in more depth.
Do I need to write essays?
No, there are no formal essays required for this course, we will, however, encourage you to keep a personal journal of your learning and the teaching staff will make time to discuss this with you if you wish.
If you attend the whole course you will receive a York School of Ministry Certificate of Attendance.
How much reading will I have to do?
As much or as little as you want. There might sometimes be a little homework – perhaps half an hour’s reading, and you may want to read through the course notes as preparation for each session.
If you want to know more, there will be suggestions for further reading – and the sky’s your limit!
