Continuing Education

The Theological School runs many educational events and hosts short courses for lay and ordained members of the community.

The Continuing Education Program is an opportunity for you to engage critically with issues from a contemporary Anglican perspective. One of the program’s aims is to enhance and invigorate the ministry of clergy and lay people in their various roles in the Church.

The Kingdom of God is near: Studies on the readings for Year B

4 November 10AM - 1PM (ONLINE ONLY)

This event is an opportunity for clergy and lay people to be enriched by the readings from Mark and the Old Testament for the forthcoming Church Year B. This study day will provide resources for preaching, worship and ministry, commencing on Advent Sunday. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to explore the Bible, discover its riches and deepen your spirituality. There will be plenty of opportunity for reflection, input and discussion.
