What is the course about?
What is the Course about?
A York School of Ministry course designed to help you learn more about the Bible. Over eight, weekly, sessions we’ll
explore the story of the Bible, looking at both the Old and New Testaments, how it came into being, who wrote it and how its message speaks to us today.
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 the Bible 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.
Is the course accredited?
No, as there is no course work but you will receive a York School of Ministry Short Course Certificate on completion of the course.
How much reading will I have to do?
As much or as little as you want. If you want to know more, there will be suggestions for further reading – and the sky’s your limit!
